Allosphere and STEM

01 March 2011

share this:

… Open house at UC Santa Barbara’s Allosphere Research Facility was like an adult 3D experience. An amazing (trippy) way of visualizing and exploring multi-dimensional input on a massive IMAX-like hemispheric screen in an attempt to gather additional insight from overwhelmingly complex data.
… Grad students (mostly foreign) displayed various augmented reality apps, vision systems and simulation methodologies.
… Good turnout of students, educators and interested business people.
… Illustrates EAST/WEST opposing trends in STEM education: start young, work hard and long, follow an academic/STEM plan and compete, versus Montessori (self-centered) start, reduced school hours and guidance, quickest route to high-paying jobs, and partying (which is the way American students are perceived all over Asia).
… “NextGen Education and Research Robotics” by Robotics Trends, Wednesday, March 10, free, attempts to cover the topic in an all day webinar.
