RISD Nature Lab | Student Summer Employment
Deadline: Fri. Feb 7

In this project, a large-scale public installation of these data visualizations projected onto a 10-foot long 3D model of Narragansett Bay will turn C-AIM data into a mobile theatre, connecting scientists with the public and linking everyone to the bay.  The SURF student will become an integral member of our animation team, learning about bay dynamics and working on creating dynamic visualizations of large-scale ecological processes. Required/preferred skills for student applicants: a strong interest and skill set in computer science, animation and data visualization is most relevant. Ideally, the student(s) would have a good working knowledge of Autodesk Maya or similar 3D computer animation software.
