Seeking an interdisciplinary cohort of undergraduate researchers, designers, coders, thinkers, innovators and creative makers. Join this unique opportunity to be a founding member of this new lab within the Center for Emerging Media Arts on the UNL campus.
Story, Worlds + Speculative Design Lab is seeking 3+ undergraduates for the 2020-2021 academic year, summer and beyond.

We already have several exciting projects in the pipeline and looking for people who want to join the team!
