Lafayette’s Technology Clinic seeks nominations of creative students who can take up the challenge of working with others to provide real world solutions to the problems that corporate, nonprofit and governmental clients provide.

The Technology Clinic brings together small teams of students that work for two semesters with faculty facilitators and a corporate liaison developing solutions. Since the program’s founding in 1986, teams have produced a wide variety of innovations. All teams are made up of students from the college’s four divisions and are advised by a pair of faculty members, one with a technical background and one from the social sciences or humanities.

Nominations should be sent to Dan Bauer, program coordinator, at 31 Marquis Hall, or via email at Interviews for nominees will begin Tuesday, April 24.

The three current teams are developing a better means of fund-raising for ProJeCt of Easton, creating a website for the National Canal Museum in Easton that will be an interactive learning tool and online showcase of the museum’s resources, and using a web-based tool to make the historical significance of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor more accessible. The National Canal Museum and ProJeCt groups will present their results from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday, May 4 in the Farinon Center Atrium. The ProJeCt team also will unveil its logo designs, public service announcements, and website on Tuesday, May 8. The Canal Museum team will make its recommendations to its client on Wednesday, May 30. The National Park Service team has completed its web site, which is expected to be up in a few months.

One recent Technology Clinic project involved a “drunk-driving simulator” housed in a red Porsche body, which has been installed as a permanent exhibit in the Weller Health Education Center in downtown Easton. Another developed scenarios and financial analyses for the future use of Easton’s historic Jacob Bachmann Tavern as an educational and tourism facility.
