Movers & Shakers, Thinkers and Bakers

The changing face of science and engineering reveals that science and engineering is no longer what many think! It now has more interesting applications than ever imagined. UT Austin will be at Westwood High School to talk to Juniors about the STEM education. 

The intent is to talk broadly about Science, Engineering, and beyond, the possibilities and the challenges, and the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of fields today to address societal needs. They will not talk much about specific disciplines; rather, the idea will be to inform high schoolers about what Science and Engineering represent today, and try to build some passion toward STEM fields. But they will also discuss more broadly issues related with learning and education, and how students may get prepared to transition to college in any field of their choosing. They will also arrange for a small group of about 3-4 senior UT-Austin undergraduate students (Westwood alums) make a few remarks about their experiences (especially from when the person was a junior in high school to where s/he is now).

The meeting will be held in the Big Black Box from 12:30-1:45 on May 19th
