Maine Impact Week – IMRC Center Spring Showcase
The Innovative Media Research and Commercialization (IMRC) Center was proud to host an open house this past April as part of Maine Impact Week.
The center’s many laboratories, adaptive workspaces, and presentation environments were open to the general public for this free event.
Staff were on-site and available to discuss all things innovation and creativity, assist with providing hands-on experiences on facility hardware and software, and answer questions.
Artwork, projects, research, and prototypes by community members and local businesses were on display throughout the facility alongside works by University of Maine faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students of multiple departments and disciplines. Over 50 works were featured during the open house!
The IMRC Center’s next showcase will be in late October and feature new interdisciplinary and immersive works!
