Held in 2014, this online brown-bag conversation is designed to empower museum educators to engage visitors in meaningful conversations about the relevance of emerging technologies to our lives. Participants will learn key concepts about the relationships between science, technology, and society, and receive specific training for having conversations using activities in the NanoDays 2014 Kit.
Presented by: Brad Herring of the Museum of Life and Science, Jamey Wetmore and Ira Bennett of Arizona State University, Douglas Coler of Discovery Place Inc., and Kevin Dilley of Sciencenter.
