| Thanks to the efforts of six student teams and UC Merced Engineering Professor Thomas Harmon, the 1890's ranch house at the River Center now showcases a new electronic kiosk designed to share educational information about the San Joaquin River.
The kiosk has multiple flat-panel monitors and shows a series of presentations on San Joaquin River issues. The kiosk will be available for use by River Center visitors during our normal operating hours of 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays.
Come visit this weekend and be among the first to enjoy the interactive programs included on the kiosk.
The kiosk is a project of UC Merced's Engineering Service Learning course, which engages multidisciplinary teams of students in designing and implementing projects for local nonprofit organizations. The project was developed over several semesters and included input by six teams of students. The interactive kiosk was made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation's Water Sustainability and Climate Program. Additional support was provided by UC Merced's Sustainability Fund, and the Foster Family Center for Engineering and Service Learning. More information about UC Merced Engineering Service Learning and the San Joaquin River Team members and activities is available by clicking here.
We'd like to thank all of the students, faculty, and project funding partners for making this kiosk possible.
