We’re very happy to introduce this year’s team from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Massachusetts, who will be working with us over the coming months to develop an online exhibition based on Object in focus. For more information about the project, see our previous update on the blog.

We might even be dropping into meetings so you may see us face to face.
