Capstone is coming Wednesday, May 30. Get all the event info and read up on some of the standout projects here. We’ll also be livestreaming the awards ceremony at that link.

We’ve posted several stories about top Capstone projects in recent days, among them:

The Technology & Social Change Group released a report about a gathering where a group of leading thinkers considered the role of public libraries as platforms civic engagement. The report points to a path forward that strengthens public libraries’ role in civic life.

Professor Michelle Martin will be honored with a mentoring award from the Children’s Literature Association. The award recognizes Martin’s work encouraging and nurturing scholars in the children’s literature field.

Assistant Professor Alexis Hiniker put on a showcase of students’ work from her “Designing for Evil” class. The class, which teaches students how to improve on “evil” design techniques, got some attention from UW News and KNKX radio.

Associate Professor Hala Annabi is among the researchers involved in an effort to make workplaces more friendly to people with autism. She and others are working with Microsoft to improve how companies recruit and support people who are on the spectrum. The Seattle Times wrote a nice feature about the program.
