2021 Madison Engineering Virtual xChange
April 19-24
Celebrating a year of good through innovation, research and design

Our virtual event will showcase sophomore, junior, and senior projects across the week of April 19-24, 2021. During the weekdays, the video sessions will have opening remarks and information for the first 10 minutes.  Junior (JR) and Senior (SR) capstone team storytelling videos will be shared using a semi-live format for 75 minutes (5 videos total each day). The semi-live sessions will last 15 minutes each. As the 8-10 minute videos are playing, teams will answer Q&A via chat and use the remaining time for live Q&A.  Voting for awards will occur in the last five minutes of each project video session.

Saturday is the interactive session with sophomore, junior, and senior teams using the Gather Town platform. Teams will have posters and prototypes on display for guests. In the virtual environment, guests will be able to walk around, view posters, and meet with teams similar to being in person. Capstone project awards will be announced in the last hour. (All times are in Eastern)
