Episode 4 - uOttawa STEAM: Collaborative projects and student learning experiences

February 26, 2019

Episode 4

This episode is slightly different, as I am joined by a special co-host, my counterpart from the Faculty of Arts, Dean Kevin Kee. Kevin and I connect with two uOttawa students, Devansh Shah from the Faculty of Engineering and Sarah Hodgson from the Faculty of Arts.

We discuss their summer 2018 experience working on a very special project that mashed tech and creativity with amazing results.
