For the past several months, a talented group of UNL students from the Colleges of Dance, Computer Science & Engineering, and Architecture have been preparing for the arrival of Elizabeth Streb and her company of dancers in Lincoln. Since January, these students have been collaborating to create an innovative exhibition combining architectural designs created by UNL students, choreography developed by UNL dancers featuring found objects and props, and robots from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s NIMBUS Lab.
On April 8, the students will meet and connect with STREB company dancers in person, share their work, and continue to develop the project under the expert guidance of STREB’s Extreme Action Heroes and Elizabeth Streb’s groundbreaking perspectives on the theory of action. Together, STREB and UNL students will explore the intersection of technology, science, design and movement over an extensive three-day residency centered on "dancing with drones." A public performance will take place on April 11 at 6:30 PM.

A tradition since 1913, E-Week is dedicated to recognizing and rewarding engineers’ accomplishments. The week culminates with the annual E-Week Open House during which senior engineering students display their research projects, corporate representatives host booths to promote their companies, and high school students partake in information sessions and hands-on activities that highlight the benefits of becoming an engineer. We generally have many robotics on display during our research lab tours and in the senior design competition. Close to 1,000 guests attended the 2013 E-Week Open house this past year.
