Topic: Healing in the Nano City
Speakers: Denise Meredith, Humanist; Anna Barker, Technical Professional
Cities like Phoenix position themselves to succeed in the race for research and development funding and economic success. Who is involved and how are these decisions made? The values and beliefs of our city are designed, both intentionally and unintentionally, by this technology. Come to the Science Café for informal discussions that bring together members of the community and university scientists to discuss how science and technology can change the future! Scientists speak for 15-20 minutes on a topic, with the rest of the time for questions and concerns from the public. Educators will earn one hour of professional development for each café attended.
