Welcome to Torch the Green!

This website chronicles the efforts of 25 honors students at Florida State University to promote FSU as a center for technological innovation by transforming FSU’s iconic Landis Green into the world’s largest FSU Torch by encouraging more than a thousand students from across campus to join President Thrasher on Landis Green, and form the shape of a Giant Torch of Innovation — a flash mob to #TorchtheGreen!

The students working on this project were enrolled in a class — IFS 2097: Emerging Technologies — offered by FSU’s School of Information during Spring 2017. For more information, please see the course syllabus at http://marty.cci.fsu.edu/ifs2097/ or contact Professor Paul Marty at marty@fsu.edu.

The blog posts on this site provide a detailed, week-by-week account of the students’ progress.
