On April 12-13, the School hosted i-fest, an annual celebration that involved faculty, staff and students from across the various degree programs at the School. Events kicked-off with the PhD Poster Competition, which featured 14 academic posters that highlighted the diverse research taking place here at the School. Friday, the building saw teams of students scurrying to find answers to the scavenger hunt questions, feverishly driving a robot through a uniquely-iSchool obstacle course, and showing off their competitive spirit during the Mario Kart Tournament.
