In 2010, the Geoscience program at UConn was fortunate to be awarded the Schwenk award for Innovation in Teaching through the UConn Foundation, that enabled us to purchase a GeoWall system for use in classes and research.
The original GeoWall and GeoWall2 systems were developed with the help of the National Science Foundation. More information about the project as well as schools that have GeoWall systems can be found here.
The system here at UConn is 2-fold and consists of both a 3D projector system (original GeoWall) where students can view various processes in 3 dimensions and a 2D high resolution screen array (GeoWall2) for viewing very high res imagery (satellite, microscope photos, etc.).
Did you know the UConn has a seismogram?
It’s part of Lamont-Doherty’s Cooperative Network. Find out more about the network and view recordings by clicking here!
