Here are a selection of projects the Digital Media Lab have collaborated on. 

Dr. Steve Acquah, adjunct professor of Chemistry, coordinator of the UMass Amherst Digital Media Lab, and director of GEOSET (Global Educational Outreach for Science Engineering and Technology), established the Sir Harold W. Kroto and Steve F.A. Acquah GEOSET Award to continue the late Nobel Laureate’s legacy in research and outreach. The award will be given to a chemistry major who has demonstrated excellence in science communication through digital media.

The UMass Create Student Fellows are a cohort of Digital Media Lab student staff. Throughout the 2018-2019 academic year, they will experiment with the UMass Create Web Domains pilot to work on their own web spaces and web projects related to the Digital Media Lab. As part of this process, the Student Fellows will regularly meet both with each other and UMass staff, reflect on their experiences using UMass Create and building a digital identity, and develop a personal web presence of their own that they can continue to grow after graduation. 

This initiative was inspired by the UMW Domain Fellows program.

Hi! My name is Lulu Amirault and I’m currently a senior Classics/Communication major at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. In addition to my academic pursuits, I also am the president of the Her Campus chapter at my school and the station manager at our university’s student-run public access station. When not on campus, you can probably find me in my room re-reading books, watching Arrested Development on Netflix, or spending hours researching and analyzing Greek myths and social media for my thesis. I also love to create videos of my friends and I. I’m excited about being a fellow because it gives me both an outlet for my creativity and also a place to express who I am.

Hello! My name is Florinda Cardoso and I am a junior here at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I plan on majoring in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation in the College of Natural Sciences. With my degree I would like to help maintain wildlife populations and environments that are in danger of disappearing. Right now my heart has fallen to the wonderful birds that inhabit the wild and trees! I am very grateful to have the opportunity to work with these creatures in the great outdoors during my lifetime. When I am not studying I like to travel. I love exploring neighboring conservation areas so I can retreat to the wild. I also love to travel across the globe. In June of 2017 I traveled to a few countries in Europe and it was not only paradise, but the best time of my life. When I am not traveling I am practicing my photography skills, knitting, painting, writing, and biking. I plan to make my domain into a blog of events relating to my field and relating to my journey and experiences through life.
