Putting Data and Technology to Use for Community Health: In this course, you will have the opportunity to investigate how we can use raw air quality data currently being collected in South Phoenix, and turn that into information, tools, products, and policy that will protect residents’ health.
Bringing a New Technology to Life, and to Market: In this course, you will research and develop applications, tools and business models for a brand-new technology from Michael Kozicki, a professor of electrical engineering.
Create a Science Museum for Children: For this project you will work to explore, imagine, and design new ways to get young minds excited about STEAM. See the Spring 2021 exhibits: https://www.asusteamtank.com/.
Re-imagining Entrepreneurship: You will tackle the challenge of redefining how entrepreneurship can jump start community development and explore ways to increase access to entrepreneurial skills and tools.

Dean Steven Tepper of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts has identified great, interdisciplinary creative classes that are open to all students. He describes these five courses as “relevant, mind-expanding, inclusive and innovative. These are ‘talk about’ classes — classes that you will talk about with friends and family.”
Do you want to build virtual experiences and games? Join the New Media Innovation and Entrepreneurship Lab and take courses for variable credit. Classes are also available in the spring semesters.
MCO 494: Innovation & Entrepreneurship Individual Projects (3-9 credits)
Do you want to learn how to use immersive media for storytelling? The Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication’s New Media Innovation & Entrepreneurship Lab offers you a unique opportunity to learn how to use immersive media, including interactive games, augmented reality and simulations as a way to tell people about important issues. In one semester, students get hands-on experience in making small games or simulations or using augmented reality and artificial intelligence to bring news and information alive. Students can pursue work inspired by our previous projects.
- Learn how to create simulations such as this George Floyd Protest, or this timeline about the California wildfires.
- Create news games such as this one that will test your empathy when it comes to helping the homeless or skill at balancing your budget while reducing your carbon footprint.
- Create augmented reality projects such as this tribute to the late Sen. John McCain or these AR extreme weather events.
