Lecture to Present 3D Models of Egyptian Pyramids
Renowned Egyptologist Nicholas Picardo will serve as a special guest lecturer on Tuesday, February 25 at noon. The event begins at noon in Blount Auditorium (Annex Central 106).
Picardo, who is a part of The Giza Project at Harvard University, will discuss the work he has conducted while collaborating with major design software corporation Dassault Systèmes. Picardo’s work will create a virtual environment for researchers on the famous pyramids at Giza.
Wentworth’s commitment to external collaboration led the school to Picardo, whose project illustrates how technology can enhance humanities research.
The title of the talk is “"Giza 3D: Digital Archaeology at the Intersection of Academia and Industry." The event is presented by the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences Media, Culture, and Communications Studies (MCCS) Lecture Series.
