Virginia Tech researchers give community sense of place on ICAT Day

By  | 

BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) More than a thousand people took a trip into virtual reality Monday and saw innovative science projects at Virginia Tech.

Monday is known as ICAT Day, a chance to take a deeper look in the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology.

About 80 projects were on display showcase semester-long, and sometimes several year-long projects.

"Today is about celebrating projects that work as the nexus of science, engineering, arts, and design. Faculty, students, even a few community members work on projects that span disciplines and today is the day we celebrate them all," said Phyllis Newbill, the Outreach and Engagement Coordinator.

Some of their projects, like these motioned censored lights, are being installed on campus.
