Theme Studio

THRILL Lab Director Dr. Kathryn Woodcock has teamed with lead applicant Dr. Louis-Etienne Dubois of the FOL!E lab and Prof. Vincent Hui of the [R[ed[U]x Lab to secure a small Ryerson Research infrastructure grant to develop attractions on campus, and especially to explore diverse voices in themed attractions. The Theme Studio will partner with industry and we’re open to contributions of hardware, mentoring, and questions of mutual interest.
