RE: Register Now: Collaborating with Strangers Workshop, February 8
"Hey stranger... Looking for a way to turn small talk into big ideas?"
Collaborating with Strangers Workshops are designed to connect students, faculty and researchers on campus during three-minute "speed meetings." You'll walk away with new friends, more resources, solutions and creative ideas than you could have ever imagined.
When: Wednesday, February 8, 4:00-5:30 p.m. (new date)
Where: University Gallery (Fine Arts Building B on SW 13th Street)
Who: University of Florida students and faculty
To learn more and register, go online to http://blogs.uflib.ufl.edu/news/?p=1034.
Space is limited. Cookies and beverages will be served.
Apply to win a mini-grant for your collaborative project -- $2,800 in partnership with the NSF funded I-Cubed Program (5 to 6 available awards)!
You are more creative than you think. The inspiration you've been looking for is right around the corner. Someone will soon help you solve an old problem. Big ideas come from one person. Bigger ideas come from two. An unexpected stranger will become your teammate. To reach your potential, you must first meet each other. You will soon meet a future collaborator. If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
