Each year the Clarkson University Honors Program connects its sophomore class with a local organization with a specific problem that needs a solution. The Honors Programs students then set out in groups to come up with real-world solutions to that problem.
This year the class collaborated with the Adirondack Museum to develop Web-based exhibits on a selection of topics based on the natural and cultural history of the Adirondack Park. The Museum asked the students to incorporate geo-referencing and visualization technologies, and they proposed a selection of possible themes including climate change, invasive species, acid rain, logging, mining, tourism, and transportation infrastructure.
The Honors Program students worked for two semesters on seven Web-based exhibits and now the Adirondack Museum will weigh the options they now have in hand free of charge.
