History of Technology at U-M
An Interactive Timeline of Creating and Inventing
Michigan IT Bicentennial Project
A cross-campus team of IT professionals recently received a U-M Bicentennial grant to develop an interactive timeline that will highlight the rich history of U-M’s technological heritage, success, and occasional failure. Supported by the Michigan IT Steering Group and burgeoning grassroots interest on campus, the timeline will show how U-M has been on the forefront of technology that shapes higher education and long-term change.
By partnering with individuals in the Michigan IT and U-M community, we will present stories from across campus that can be enjoyed during the U-M Bicentennial Festival and afterwards.
If you or someone from your unit is interested in contributing stories or abilities to the project, please send an email to IT.Bicentennial.Team@umich.edu.
A range of opportunities to collaborate are available, from identifying important unit technology-related events to contributing to the development of the timeline-based project. In particular we are looking for web developers, writer/editors, and videographers.
The team is also open to other creative ways of working together to commemorate U-M’s rich technological history.
