The campus community is invited to attend the fair on Tuesday, Oct. 19, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the Trabant University Center Multipurpose Rooms. Registration is encouraged, but not required. A light buffet lunch will be provided.

From 3D video to Microsoft Office, high-speed camera applications to online content development, the fair is the place to get tech questions answered. If you don't see something you are interested in, ask about it to get the conversation started.
