1. I'm working with a colleague on an orbital jazz ensemble that will include astronauts on the space station for an international conference in '05.
2. I'm arranging for a nano happy hour to facilitate brain storming of our incredible advisory board with UT Nanotechnology scientists to ensure Austin's place in bio-tech action.
3. I'm working with professors to market STS classes to students. Since the program is interdisciplinary we have to work to get it aligned with students' graduation plans.
Science, Technology and Society (STS) is the unification of traditionally separate disciplines into an integrated whole to address problems in society. Our goal is to develop a meaningful whole from seemingly disparate academic research and teaching pieces, by making multidirectional intellectual connections among disciplines, ideas, and among diverse groups of individuals and organizations. and it's fun.
