Thursday, November 14th from 4-6pm on the 2nd floor of the Library.

Drop in to meet students and faculty working on creative and innovative projects and looking for people like you to join them. Refreshments served, fun provided. 

Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) are a way for students to earn academic credits for working alongside faculty on ambitious multi-semester research and community projects. Teams are multidisciplinary and need students with diverse skills, interests, and majors. You don’t have to be an expert to join. VIP projects exist to help students learn and build skills over time.

The Maker Lab provides resources for all students, faculty and staff at Boise State. They have equipment such as 3D printers, CNC Mills, sewing machines, soldering irons, and other tools to bring ideas to life. No experience or appointment necessary–they will teach you everything you need to know.  Come to VIP-Con to get your first look at what’s possible and meet other “makers”.

STUDENTS! Are you a student who is not on a VIP team but have something cool that you made that you want to share? Whether you created something in the Maker Lab, Student Machine Shop, or at home on your own, come show it off and meet other Makers! Click here to reserve a space.
