Hal Calbom’s new documentary film, Imagining Tomorrow: STEM and the Future of Work, shows we could be doing more to excite student interest in STEM careers, improve opportunities for young women and people of color, and bridge skills gaps between education and industry.
Imagining Tomorrow shares a students-eye-view, and puts forward four provocative propositions:
1. Succeeding by Failing – utilizing more trial and error and scientific method.
2. Extended Conversations – fostering career connected learning face to face.
3. Students Leading – encouraging self-directed student programs and projects.
4. Learning to Learn – emphasizing process, problem-solving communications.
Premiere at Murrow Symposium: 10:30 AM Monday, March 26th, CUB Jr. Ballroom, WSU Pullman Campus
Sponsored by Itron. Comments and Q and A by the filmmaker and sponsors to follow.
