NCSCE Science and Engineering for Social Good Conference
The National Center for Science and Civic Engagement (NCSCE) invites you to attend our upcoming conference, Science and Engineering for Social Good. This conference will be held at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta on February 9-11, 2018, and is presented in partnership with Georgia Tech, Stony Brook University, and The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP). The content will be directed toward meeting the needs of faculty, future faculty, staff and administrators.
Many of the pressing global issues and problems of our time, including health, energy and the environment, infrastructure, security, and economic development have significant scientific and technological dimensions. In order to meet the challenges, interdisciplinary approaches—bringing together STEM, the arts/humanities, global knowledge, and a diversity of people and ideas—must be at the core of education and work in this 21st century. In this conference, NCSCE will explore strategies to build holistic approaches to education—for both STEM and non-STEM majors (e.g,. STEM-enhanced liberal arts). In addition, there will be an exploration of the implications of such highly interdisciplinary and global approaches for education, and the increasingly diverse and global workforce.

The registration fee is $500 per person for faculty, $400 for students, and includes all sessions and related materials, a reception on February 9th, breakfast and lunch on February 10th, and breakfast on February 11th. The deadline to register is January 26, 2018.
