Yesterday we had a pretty interesting Luncheon & Lecture with the chair of the Graphic Design Department. He talked about how he connected design to helping the community. I did something similar in my Software Engineering class last semester where we made applications to help the food banks and volunteer organizations within our local community. I will also be doing this again in the fall for my Interactive Media course where we help local businesses in Trenton. Later we had a research meeting where we tried to further define our project by establishing a use case.
Today we finished up Solidworks which I thought was interesting. Definitely looking forward to trying Maya later today. Our grad student stopped by today to tell us a use case has been chosen and we will get to know what it is soon. My group is currently working on the problem area paragraph, the lit review write up and doing research to make sure no one has done it already. Aside from that still working on learning java script.
