LCC’s Student Innovation and Creativity Showcase, best known as StarScapes, is happening April 24 and 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Gannon Highway and online. Students are encouraged to register by April 12.

“The best part of StarScapes is seeing the cool things our students do,” said LCC History Professor Jeff Janowick. “It is a great opportunity for students to share what they’ve done, but also to connect with each other.”

Students are welcomed to share their work and engage with others. This can be done in-person or online. Students can share performances, readings, even mini seminars.

“LCC students do lots of creative and innovative work, both in class and out,” Janowick said. “Often, only a faculty member sees that work when it is submitted as part of a class.

“This is a way to highlight what our students are capable of, and to give students a chance to show some of the exciting things they have done.”

LCC welcomes every LCC student to come and participate, or simply to observe and support their local aspiring artists. Students who want to participate will need sponsorship from a supporting faculty member.

“StarScapes is open to all LCC students, so you will see students from a range of programs: from science to art to welding,” Janowick said. “It varies every semester, so hopefully we’ll see you.”

Janowick said every semester, the displays show new perspectives on art and culture.

“I have many great memories from StarScapes,” he said. “We’ve had student art projects – the art projects on climate change last semester left a big impression on many people – and even a student film.

“The flash mob by the sign language students was amazing. What stood out the most, was seeing the excitement from students about their work.”

Janowick said the faculty is excited to uplift students and celebrate the work they have accomplished so far.

“StarScapes is organized by faculty because we are so impressed by the work of our students,” he said. “And we want to highlight their accomplishments.”

Janowick also emphasized that StarScapes events always has free cookies! For more details and a link to the registration form, visit StarScapes.
