Pratt Institute's Research Open House
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Pratt faculty, staff, and students will host presentations, live demonstrations,and talks about one of a kind research projects tackling pressing issues, from immigration reform to community civic engagement. The third annual Open House will be a part of Pratt’s Green Week, a weeklong celebration of sustainability initiatives, and will highlight Pratt’s unique approach to research, featuring nontraditional exhibition and performance based interdisciplinary projects. The event is free and open to the public. Faculty/staff volunteers, as well as students from Pratt’s Foundation program – a community experience which brings together first year art and design majors to develop creative skills and build relationships together – will be serving as judges for Open House projects. Research winners will be selected in four categories: sustainability, innovation, community impact, and entrepreneurship, and will receive grant money to continue their projects. Previous winners include: Grassroots Cactivism: promotes use of the Nopales cactus as a sustainable crop for food and packaging, Lourie Harrison’s Pollinators Pavilion: an architectural space that doubles as a visitor center and home for bees vital to non-agricultural pollination, and Ami Cai’s Song Searching: uses gaming technology to encourage players to navigate through ocean noise pollution as a humpback whale.Venue: Pratt Institute
