Reunions 2017
The Council on Science and Technology (CST)hosted  two events during Reunions Weekend

A panel discussion was held on STC209, Transformations in Engineering and the Arts.
Alumni were invited to the StudioLab Open House to view final projects and tinker in the lab.
STC 309 Final Projects
Norah Bradley '18 and Max Greenwald '17  created a device for Haben Girma, a lawyer, disability rights advocate and public speaker who is deafblind.  The device allowed her to gauge audience engagement and response to public speaking engagement at Global Accessibility Awareness Day in April.   Learn more here...

CST Spotlight on Courses
The Environment: Science and Policy (WWS350) is a Spring semester course that addresses the science and policy concepts behind some of our most pressing environmental issues. Students grapple with topics like the traits that make laws like the Clean Air Act successful, challenges and solutions to reaching international agreements to cooperate on issues like climate change, differing perspectives on environmental issues for various stakeholders, and scientific data that underpin our understanding of the urgency for action. CST has worked with the teaching team, David Wilcove and Michael Oppenheimer, to engage the students in critical thinking throughout the course, particularly by developing meaningful precept discussions that engage all students and homework assignments that help students think through course concepts outside of class.  Associate Director, Catherine Riihimaki has worked with the course from its initial offering in Spring 2013, through three different sets of instructors. Contact her ( for more information about this course or about other ways to collaborate with CST on innovative course design. Read more here...
