Science Pubs returns with “Lightning Talks” on March 21 at O’Connor Brewing in Norfolk.
“Lightning Talks” are five-minute or less talks given by graduate students from across Old Dominion University.
Topics and speakers include:
- “Rising Seas and a Sinking City” by Ali Burgos, master’s student in Oceanography
- “An Examination of Scientific Argumentation in an Elementary Inclusive Classroom” by Mindy Gumpert, PhD candidate in Education
- “Cooperation is for the Birds” by Natasha Hagemeyer, PhD candidate in Ecology
- “Harbored: Making History Interactive Through Digital Exhibition” by Stephanie Hawthorne, master’s student at the Institute for the Humanities
- “Accessible Bioprinting: Design and Development of a 3D Bioprinting Device” by John Reid, PhD candidate in Biomedical Engineering
- “Dealing with Angel Investors: The Anchoring Effect in Unstructured Negotiations” by Aydin Oksoy, PhD candidate in Strategic Management
- “Campus Resource Usage by Victims of Sexual Violence” by Julie Stoner, PhD candidate in Health Sciences Research Program
“This is a real opportunity for the students, who aren’t full-time faculty like the usual Science Pub and may be new to sharing – although still extremely talented,” said Bryan Porter, professor and assistant dean of the Graduate School at Old Dominion University.
Join the conversation on Wednesday: Networking begins at 6 p.m., followed by the talks at 6:30. A question and answer panel with all of the students will follow the talks.
Dr. Tom Socha, professor and graduate program director in the Lifespan and Digital Communication master of arts program in the Department of Communication, will host the event. The first 20 attendees to arrive will receive a free beverage ticket. RSVPs are recommended.
To close the 2017-18 school year of Science Pubs on Thursday, April 26, Alison Stinely, assistant professor in the Department of Art at ODU will present “3-D Printing: Merging Antiquity & New Technology in Art Making” at the Bearded Bird in Norfolk’s NEON district.
