1. Blue Trail is a bold new non-profit endeavor. With our ocean in a state of crisis, Blue Trail is creating new and dramatic ways to engage the public in ocean sustainability blending art, design, tech and science. This September, visitors to the San Francisco waterfront will walk the very first Blue Trail—a series of imaginative and interactive installations that will awaken people to the beauty, mystery and fragility of the world's oceans and inspire them to take action.

    At UC Santa Cruz's OpenLab, artists and scientists use data as a material for making and learning collaboratively. The OpenLab Network is a new research initiative which targets a complex education issue of national significance regarding the ability of art and science researchers to collaborate on research endeavors. The goal of the OpenLab Network is to help change the current status by providing shared research facilities and create a network for collaborative discourse fueled by academic communities, arts and science communities, and industry.

    The OpenLab Network project is pursuing the physical development of new collaborative laboratories on campus as spaces to foster this research and establish an on-line social networking system for faculty and students to create projects. Laboratories and studios in both the arts and the sciences will be accessible to users in the OpenLab Network. Within this immersive environment, we will conduct research to acquire skills and knowledge that crosses disciplinary boundaries between science, education, and the arts while sharing expertise in collaborative research methodologies.
