NTID Celebration

NTID welcomed its first students to its Rochester campus 45 years ago. To celebrate, the National Technical Institute for the Deaf welcomed hundreds of graduates back to the campus this week. On Friday, NTID officially opened a new research building--the $8 million, two-story, deaf-friendly Sebastian and Lenore Rosica Hall. There is research already going on in the building. For instance, the video below shows a demonstration of the See-Through, Life-Size Interactive Monitor being developed. A teach can stand behind it, facing the students and write something the students can read at the same time--and a student on the other side of the monitor can type an answer. Read more about the new building here.
