Abstract

The Capstone Showcase is an annual event in which engineering teams from multiple disciplines display their year-long projects, promoting their professional skills. Due to COVID-19, the Spring 2020 showcase was shifted to a virtual event. Challenges included designing the experience to be interactive, determining which platform and software would best facilitate the event, and coordinating requirements across over 200 teams in five engineering disciplines. The event was a success and the format will be used in the future. Future improvements include randomizing guests’ search so all projects have equal opportunity to be visited, scheduling the event over a lunch period to encourage industry attendance, and collecting site statistics to gauge impact.
