The weekend of April 13th Disney announced the newest film in the Star Wars saga at their Star Wars Celebration event. A team from Ithaca College made up of faculty, recent alumni, and one current student presented a panel at the event discussing their project that built a life-sized working replica of a robot from the film, BB-8.

For his senior project in Communication Management & Design student Garrett Chin ('18) worked with Dr. Edd Schneider to build a life-sized working replica of the sphere-based robot BB-8 from the new Star Wars films.
