Creative Intelligence + Innovation + Collaboration = Ci2


At the Ci2  we turn ideas into action action into things

Our mission is to develop individual and group creativity in an open concept experiential learning environment. Participants develop creative problem solving, critical thinking and marketable skills that foster innovation and community engagement.

We emphasize collaboration on cross-disciplinary design projects that demonstrate creative research, scholarship and innovation.  The projects need to have the potential for creative expression and / or commercialization.

TedXDirigo

Raphael Speaks on Creativity at TEDx Dirigo In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Virtual and Augmented Reality

The Ci2 has been using virtual reality and augmented reality since 2013

We have been proudly using virtual reality and augmented reality since 2013 in the Ci2.  We were among the first in the country to get the development kits for Google Glass, Oculus Rift, Meta and Microsoft Hololens.  We also have systems dedicated for development for the HTC Vive and other consumer versions of AR and VR.  The Ci2 is at the forefront of AR/VR development.
