The CIS Sandbox is a social learning space where students prepare to succeed in their CIS courses and to thrive in a technology-driven business world.
As a campus destination for informal technology education, the CIS Sandbox distinguishes itself through its ability to:
- Provide peer-led tutoring services and online resources for students in CIS and IT courses
- Offer cutting-edge technology presentations and educational events for students and campus partners
- Foster an entrepreneurial spirit among CIS students interested in “building cool stuff with cool people using cool technology” by supporting requests and ideas for programs, equipment, and activities from CIS student tutors
- Create a sense of community among CIS students, faculty, alumni, and staff interested in furthering their IT knowledge and skills through peer and informal learning activities
Prof. Mark Frydenberg is the founding director of the CIS Sandbox, introducing this new learning space to the Bentley campus in 2011. See how we turned the old CIS Lab into the CIS Sandbox during the summer of 2011.
