The Steam Factory on Webs

Nov 3, 2016 (All day)
Thompson Library Room 165

The STEAM Exchange is a series of colloquia in which speakers from different fields present their interpretation on the same topic. The topic of this upcoming STEAM Exchange is Webs, and the four presenters include:

Sarah Rose, PhD Candidate, School of Environmental and Natural Resources
Tasos Sidiropoulos, Assistant Professor, Departments of Computer Science & Engineering and Mathematics
Jessica Logan, Senior Research Scientist, Department of Education and Human Ecology
Glennon Sweeney, Research Associate, Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, PhD Student, City and Regional Planning Department

Exchanges are an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about the STEAM Factory, an interdisciplinary group of individuals from all colleges across campus. This particular offering is also inspired by one of nature’s many creatures, spiders, and the webs they weave. So we’ll hear from Sarah Rose, PhD student in Ecological Restoration, about the wonderful world of webs, followed by other speakers who interpret the topic from different disciplinary perspectives. For example, we’ll learn about the math behind “webs” or networks, and how webs can be applied in research on childhood learning over time, and increasing food security through a participatory mapping web app. Anyone working with social networks, relationships among stakeholders, mapping approaches, the internet, or any other web may be interested in the lively discussions we’ll have.

Dinner is provided if you RSVP to Charlene Brenner at
