STEAM Speaker Series
The STEAM Speaker Series features lectures on a range of topics covering the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. Lectures are offered in the fall and spring semesters and are open to students, faculty and community members.
The series is coordinated by Elias Argyris, Assistant Professor of Biology.
In addition to their genomic contribution, germ cells have the capacity to transmit information to the next generation that is “above” the DNA. This so-called epigenetic information has the potential to modulate the trajectory of embryonic development and elicit phenotypes in offspring. Learn about this exciting new mode of inheritance and Nick Galambos's path as a first-generation college student navigating through graduate education in STEM.
"Augmented Reality in STEAM Training and Education"
Brian Yetzer, MEd, Augmented Reality Experience Design Specialist and Educator; Instructor, Computer Illustration
Augmented Reality (AR) is an immersive, interactive technology that is rapidly changing how we process information. From passive to active, AR offers a dynamic, engaging alternative to traditional learning and training, improving retention, safety and ROI. Learn how AR can simplify the complex, its application in STEAM fields, and how to implement it into training and educational settings.
