UMBC’s iCubed Project is one of 31 projects funded under the National Science Foundation’s Innovation Through Institutional Integration emphasis. The NSF I3 endeavor challenges institutions, faculty, and administrators to explore how integrating individual NSF awards can create much more than just the sum of the project components. For details about this NSF initiative and descriptions of all funded I3 projects, including UMBC’s project, visit the National Science Foundation Innovation Through Institutional Integration website at http://nsf-i3.org/ .

Welcome to Cohort 3
Many students launched their iCubed@UMBC experience at one of the five team Welcome Week meetings held on Monday afternoon, August 26, 2013. They connected with their team members, received team shirts, had some fun as they helped to create content for an iCubed YouTube spot, and enjoyed a frosty treat. Many thanks to the many people, especially the staff volunteers recruited by UMBC Student Life, who worked together to make the team meetings successful. Team members, who can be recognized by the color of their shirts, met in the following locations:
Team: Active Learning (Blue)
With Dr. Bill LaCourse and Dr. Philip Rous in University Center, Room 115D
