CBU students and faculty members showcase their innovative work at the Long Night of Arts and Innovation

Riverside, Calif. (Oct. 11, 2019) – California Baptist University faculty members and students displayed some of their innovations at the Riverside Long Night of Arts and Innovation event on Oct. 10.

The event stretched over several blocks in downtown Riverside with hundreds of people in attendance to learn about the latest developments in art, science and education in Riverside.

The Gordon and Jill Bourns College of Engineering had the largest presence for CBU that included several exhibits, including a high-speed camera, programmed mechanical hands, video game designs and an SAE vehicle. Civil engineering students featured 3D print designs that included models of the Fox Performing Arts Center, the World Peace Tower and Mount Rubidoux.

Alex Liu, a computer science senior, demonstrated an application he helped develop. The application was designed to help the Associated Students of CBU (ASCBU) track votes for their next election.

“It is a voting application to be used by ASCBU as a cheaper alternative. [It] uses the latest in modern application technology,” Liu said.

Victoria Lynch, a mechanical engineering junior, said she enjoyed discussing all the innovative ideas she is learning at CBU.

“Hopefully the event gets people in the community interested in engineering,” Lynch said. “[I hope it also] provides an opportunity for families to learn together.”
