THIS EVENT WILL BE HELD AT THE ETTER-HARBIN ALUMNI CENTER, UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS-AUSTIN

 

Education lies at the heart of America’s future. America’s innovative edge in economics and national security builds on our pool of scientists, engineers, and technically trained specialists. The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, National Instruments, and the University of Texas’s LBJ School of Public Affairs are co-sponsoring a discussion on the future of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education in the United States. Following a keynote address by inventor Dean Kamen, a group of panelists will assess developments in STEM education and explore the impact of the recent emphasis on project-based learning.

This event is cosponsored by National Instruments.
