2:00 pm-3:00 pmSTEM Education Seminar ANDERSEN HALL
Dr. Dennis Molfese, Center for Brain, Biology & Behavior, will present a seminar titled "Brain Science and STEM Learning.” Brain Science is an interdisciplinary science and as such touches on a host of domains that among others include behavioral & social sciences, biological sciences, computer & information science, economics, engineering (multiple domains from electrical to mechanical to structural), education, human resources, engineering, environmental, education, geosciences, engineering, mathematical, physical sciences, psychology, and zoology. The approach provides a means to study matter from an assortment of elements to the integration of complex domains that stretch from the interactions of neuropeptides to conscious thought that cover the lifespan of single cell organisms to humans. We will touch on a few of these dimensions, addressing both misconceptions that derail or distort the educational process as well as those that sustain and enhance the growth of minds.

Dr. Doug Gollick, Department of Entomology, will present a seminar titled "Pollination Education Research." It covers learning outcomes of pollination to plate, a mobile application designed to teach pollination process and related food literacy to young adults. He will also present preliminary data on undergraduate students’ understanding of pollination systems.

A simultaneous teleconference of this seminar will be available in Hardin Hall 202, on East Campus.
