Due to Hurricane Michael and Gainesville possibly experiencing a deluge this Wednesday, the decision has been made to postpone the 2018 Student Tech Fair from its Oct. 10 date.
High winds and heavy rains are forecast. Although Tech Fair takes place underneath the overhang of the Reitz Union, the monitors, 3D printers, podcast kits, and other technologies brought to the event by the participants could be damaged by the moisture.
UFIT has rescheduled the Student Tech Fair for Friday, Feb. 8, 2019, at the Reitz Union. Rescheduling to the spring term allows for Innovation Academy students, not on campus during the fall semester, to also learn about the tech services and support options available to UF undergraduates. IT-Communications staff will liaise with all participants and vendors to reconfirm details of the event’s new date.
