Our blog post, written by Lisa Tweten earlier this week, has been reposted on the GRAND website! Her experience at the challenge, and the amazing support of our faculty, is a delight to read and such a great opportunity for us to spread the word about From Stone to Screen.
GRAND in association with the University of British Columbia Media and Graphics Interdisciplinary Centre (MAGIC Lab) hosted the I-Cubed (I3) – Idea, Innovation and Inaugurate Challenge in September. Participating teams pitched business ideas to a panel of judges drawn from the digital media and investment communities to earn a 3-month residency in the MAGIC Lab, and in-kind technical and business support to help take the proposal to the next stage. Lisa Tweten’s winning pitch was to develop a companion mobile app that will provide a visual complement to aid the study of epigraphic squeezes with relevant historical context.
