WPI Student Project: The Art of Combat

Hello, we’re five students from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and we’ve spent the last seven weeks conducting research in collaboration with WAM's Arms and Armor Curator, Jeffrey Forgeng. You may have seen us surveying in the [remastered] or Knights! gallery lately—we've been researching how to make the technology in these exhibits as user-friendly and enticing as possible. You’ll be able to see our work on the iPads in the upcoming The Art of Combat exhibition, opening May 28. You can also learn a few things about the The Art of Combat (in a rather less serious setting) from the video we developed, with our personal touch, about WAM's plans for arms and armor.
