STC Spring Showcase

The Showcase

On Friday, April 27 from 12:00 pm-2:00 pm in room 201 and atrium, the STC Spring Showcase will display projects completed by TTU students enrolled or interested in technical communication courses. The goal of this event is to support and inspire English students and faculty as well as provide a space for networking and collaboration on not only finished, but on projects in progress.

Undergraduate and graduate students of all majors who are interested in technical communication are welcome to participate. Participants are not required to be technical communication majors/minors but are expected to give synchronous, informal presentations or demonstrations of their work for a significant part of the showcase. Attendees may come and go. Participants should register for the event at https://goo.gl/forms/7d1WuAY8FXgfC0tI2  

Students have the opportunity to win one of two $200 scholarships and a $100 People’s Choice Award.  The 2311 Design Contest winners, sponsored by the Media Lab (see below), will be announced at this event as well. Note: The scholarship money is supported by the English Department, not STC.

This event is co-sponsored by the English Department, the Media Lab, and the student chapter of Society for Technical Communication (STC).
