Contributed by Cathy Wood on 10/17/2014
Message from Wade Pickren, PhD
Saturday, November 1, 2014 –8:30 am – 4:00 pm – CNS 208

The methods presented may be applicable to making connections between ICC courses. Although the focus of the workshop is STEM, the MSE project methods apply to any discipline-based course that wants to make meaningful connections to other courses in any other discipline sharing a common theme.
Morning session speakers will be Dr. Jason Hamilton and Dr. Thomas Pfaff and will examine the need for developing 21st century problem solvers and a framework for connecting disciplines through sustainability themed questions.
