The Digital Storytelling Lab enables students to invent the next generation of storytelling tools. Storytelling tools are used to build CG animation, games and other applications. The lab is a key part of CS classes in graphics, vision and user interfaces and a resource for CS Animation Emphasis students.



The Fall 2009 Capstone Kick-off meeting will be held in the demo room at 11 am on Thursday, September 3rd. This is a chance for interested students to find out what projects are going on or to propose their own. CS students can get CS 598R, which counts as a 400 level elective, for participating in capstone projects. Demo Day will be at the end of the semester and we anticipate having significant prizes again this year. (Mike Jones, August 31)
