What We're Doing

Informational Meetings

We plan to accomplish the aforementioned goals by first introducing and encouraging a deep understanding of the technological basis of the blockchain and how it is all possible. These meetings will be informational sessions in a lecture format to explore a particular topic in depth.  

Round Table Discussions

These meetings will be a group discussions for club members to collaboratively brainstorm and debate various topics concerning blockchain technology and related current events. All club members are encouraged to bring discussion topics and material to meetings. An overview of topics to be discussed will be provided before meetings.

Collaborative Projects

The club plans to introduce additional events in the spring semester which will take a more interactive and hands-on approach to learning. We plan to create interactive events that focus on further learning about the technology and its use cases by collaboratively building decentralized applications on top of the blockchain and applying them to novel applications. .
