For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package. More detailed information will be discussed in class with your Guide and Customer

This project was inspired by Dr. Marla Schweppe and the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences. The goal of this project is to achieve a usable fluid curtain as a projector display screen. The look of the curtain should be natural but not too turbulent to disrupt any images that are being projected onto the curtain. Professor Slack will be aiding the design team with their design progress. The team will also be consulting directly with Dr. Schweppe and her CIAS students to ensure that the goals and needs of the customer are being fulfilled sufficiently.
