You will navigate the Pioneer Valley, learning about the geologic and hydrologic processes that shape watersheds and understanding how watersheds function. You will become an expert in the different types of storage reservoirs for water in the surface and subsurface. We will romp through rivers and take measurements of water flux and water chemistry in forests, wetlands, and from monitoring wells. We will take advantage of laboratory facilities (such as the stable isotope and hydrogeology laboratory) in the Geosciences Department at the University of Massachusetts to analyze and interpret data collected during our field experiences.
Since 1996, our goal has been helping students achieve their dreams.

In past projects, students have had the opportunity to
In addition to the program fee, there is also a $100 materials fee to cover the cost of necessary art supplies, which come pre-packaged through the Art Department.
I couldn't be more pleased with the result.
A survey of technological advancements in the field of digital media and their impact. The objective is to explain how digital media has transformed the communication of ideas in society and to make responsible choices in the creation and consumption of digital media based on awareness of global, social, ethical, and legal contexts. Topics include social media, the visual display of information, ethics and privacy, participatory media, and the impact of digital media on culture.
All programs are 2-week unless otherwise noted
A focused survey of the intersection of technology and history and the evolutionary process that marks what we call progress. The objective is to apply historical precedent to everyday responsibilities and relationships in order to advance the goals and ideals of contemporary society; compare and contrast historical eras; and describe how events influence our sense of time, space, and technology.
Our faculty work or have worked at organizations including
We are going to be making lots of work, utilizing a variety of media from drawing to collage to sculpture to words to zines, as well as going on a field trip. Our projects will grow and change together depending on our interests, passions and questions. No prior art experience is necessary. By the end of this course, each student will have a variety of finished works and an understanding as to how these works can contribute to an art portfolio for future endeavors.

To solve such problems, computer engineers have developed technology for shielding a device from connecting to a cellular carrier’s network. Computer forensic scientists no longer need to turn off the device to isolate it. For example, radio frequency (RF) shielded test enclosure boxes help keep signals from entering or leaving the device. A Faraday bag, used in conjunction with conductive mesh, can also isolate a mobile device. Using these techniques, investigators can safely transport mobile devices to the lab while the device is turned on (1).
