Presentation Tuesday Night at NSF in Arlington
Martin Ogle and I are giving a presentation this evening in the atrium of the National Science Foundation building on using Entrepreneurship, Systems Theory, and Integrative STEM Education Strategies to Facilitate Sustainability. This is part of the Ballston Partnership for Science and Technology’s Cafe Scientifique Lecture Series. Martin is a local and national expert on GAIA Theory (the foundation for Earth Systems Science), and I’ll be talking about local and national efforts in integrative, interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary education.
Half-price burgers and beer start at 5:30pm (atrium side of The Front Page), and we start at 6:30pm. We’ll talk for only 20-30 minutes, followed by questions and discussion. Lots of parking. Please come if your schedule allows.
Serious Games in the Government and Military
I was on a panel last Friday at the State Department’s tech@state conference. My panel was called, “Serious Games in the Government and Military”. My talk begins at around 16:00, although Garth Jenson, who speaks before me has many good things to say. The sound doesn’t begin until 8:15 or so, and poor Garth was labeled as me.
I’m describing a project created by Sharon Bowers, Margaret Corbett, Michael Connett and I back in 2009, in which high school students work in virtual worlds with university engineering students and professional engineers and scientists to solve real NASA problems.
