The latest developments in science, art, and everything in between were on display Monday at the Experience Innovation Expo, held at the Student Union as part of the University of Connecticut’s Month of Discovery.

Students presented their work in fields ranging from artificial intelligence to public health to puppetry for attendees who had hands-on opportunities to explore some of the resources that exist at UConn to harness their creativity and entrepreneurial skills.

Like any good event, it was also a lot of fun, with giveaways, T-shirts for attendees, and plenty of UConn Dairy Bar ice cream.
