Discovery Bar @ Cabot Science Library, Harvard Science Center

Please join us for the third event in the Digital Futures Discovery Series, a year-long program led by Harvard’s Digital Futures Consortium that explores the ongoing transformation of scholarship through innovative technology. Anas Chalah will present Drone Technology: Bridging the Gap Between Research and Teaching.

Advance environmental engineering research using drone technology has informed our undergraduate design-based education at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University. Dr. Chalah will shed light on how a summer program was designed in the summer 2017 to educate high school students on design thinking, system and system control by using drones as the main educational tool.

Following the presentation, please join us in sharing your ideas and questions. We look forward to meeting you.
