The Michigan Tech Inventory of Historic Scientific Instruments (IHSI) is currently a collaboration between the students in Dr. Steve Walton's History of Science (SS 3581) and Dr. Andrew Fiss's Science Writing (HU 3693). The goal of the broader project is to catalogue and document all the historic instruments in all departments across campus. The initial website will be developed between February and April 2017.
