IxDA Seattle members are invited to join us at the World Lab Summer Institute Seattle Exhibition, this Friday 10 AM - 1 PM at UW CSE.  Please RSVP (see below) so we can order your free lunch. World Lab is a new interdisciplinary research and educational institution that is ideally suited to tackle the important problems facing the world in the areas of Environment, Health, and Education. The World Lab is sited jointly between two of the planets leading computing and human-centered design institutions, the University of Washington in Seattle and Tsinghua University in Beijing.

Come join us on Friday, August 24th, from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM to see what the 20 students (11 from China) created in the World Lab Summer Institute, the first of a series of World Lab events. Lunch is on us. It is a great chance to meet top graduating multicultural students in computer science, informatics, design, and digital arts who have an interest in changing the planet together.
