What is BOOM '01? 

It's a fair that showcases student efforts and creativity in digital technology and applications. We will be using previous CS Fairs as prototypes, but will be including other disciplines as well this year.

BOOM '01 is being held via two mediums--the web, and a poster session. The poster session will take place on the afternoon of February 28, 2001.

If you have an exciting student project in this area, please use this great opportunity to show off your work. Let us know your name and email addresses by sending mail to

The BOOM '01 Committee will select outstanding projects for display in the Upson Hall 3rd floor display cases.

It will be possible to bring in a computer to demonstrate the projects.
