Arts Thesis / New Solar Windows

Arts Thesis

USF’s School of Art’s BFA Senior Thesis class is presenting “Feast,” a collection of their thesis work at the West Tampa Canter for the Arts through December 3rd. University Beat on WUSF-TV shows you how the students created a variety of work, ranging from paintings, sculptures and photographs to animated pieces and ‘mash-up’ videos.

New Solar Windows

A new form of technology that could change the way we look at solar energy has been created in the lab of a USF physics professor. University Beat on WUSF 89.7 shines a light on the first-of-its kind transparent solar window that’s capable of generating electricity.
