Dozens of interactive multimedia exhibits created by Montana State University students are available to the public throughout the holidays and into next semester.

The modules feature images, text, video and animations. The exhibits are on display in Extended University's Studio 1080, in the atrium of the EPS (Engineering and Physical Sciences) Building, just east of the SUB. The touch-screens are accessible during MSU business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, holidays excluded).

Subjects include how paleontologists study dinosaur bones, urban renewal plans for San Francisco neighborhoods, the history of Montana production agriculture, Crow place names, and many other topics in astronomy, agriculture, engineering and more.

The modules, which can be accessed through plasma touch-screens, were created by students in three MSU courses: AgEd312, Architecture 456, and Communicating Science to the Public, a non-credit course.

Visitors should first touch "Studio 1080 multimedia" on the plasma screens, then touch "Student Projects." For help, go to the Burns Technology Center offices in 128 EPS.
