Speaker 1: Fanuel Muindi, PhD

Professor of the Practice, CAMD

Title: The Logic behind the Public Engagement with Science Hub (PESH)

PESH aims to cultivate a community of scholars and practitioners from diverse academic fields who share a passion for strengthening the engagement pathways between scientists and members of the public. In this talk, I will discuss the logic behind PESH and the ongoing work in my lab around civic science journalism.

Speaker 2: Eileen McGivney, PhD

Assistant Professor, CAMD

Visiting Scholar, Next Level Lab at the Harvard Graduate School of Education

Title: Engaging in science with virtual reality technologies

Abstract: Immersive technologies are increasingly prevalent in our lives, from mobile-based augmented reality to virtual reality (VR) headsets like the Meta Quest to spatial computing devices like the Apple Vision Pro. How do these technologies provide new ways for understanding science and the work of scientists? In this presentation, I will discuss my research using VR in education to highlight the promise and limitations of immersive technology for increasing engagement with and understanding of science.
