Felice Frankel Workshop - Making Science and Engineering Pictures Mar 18, 2016 Description:
Graphics, images and figures—visual representations of scientific data and concepts—are critical components of science and engineering research. They communicate in ways that words cannot. They can clarify or strengthen an argument and spur interest into the research process.

This interdisciplinary workshop will address best approaches to creating images and figures for scientific journal submissions and presentations. Graduate students and researchers will collaboratively discuss their own figures and poster designs, developing new approaches to represent research data and concepts. The workshop will provide an opportunity to engage in cross-disciplinary conversations about science and graphical design.

Felice Frankel is a research scientist and photographer in the Center for Materials Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She has published a book titled Visual Strategies: A Practical Guide to Graphics for Scientists and Engineers and taught the MITx online course, Making Science and Engineering Pictures: A Practical Guide to Presenting Your Work.

Time: 1:00 pm

Prerequisites: Registrants will be asked to provide, in advance of the workshop, an in-process graph, image or visualization to work on during the workshop. 


All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Felice Frankel's book Visual Strategies : A Practical Guide to Graphics for Scientists and Engineers.

Future Wearables Mar 31, 2016 Description:


Wearables are the future of connected devices. As technologies have become smaller and more powerful they have also become easier to integrate into our everyday interactions with the world. Medical implants, smart watches, smart clothing, and many other tools are changing what we do, how we do, and how we work together.  In this workshop Sibel Deren Guler , founder of Teknikio, will help us explore wearable devices and consider how new technologies might change, improve, or augment our lives?


Using electronics and craft materials we’ll work together to prototype future wearable devices.  Drawing inspiration from superheroes, science fiction, and own imaginations, we’ll investigate new ways to interact with technologies, we’ll experiment with new methods of sensing and making sense, and we’ll imagine new futures to explore.


This program was made possible in part through a Diversity Mini-Grant from the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity. Women are especially encouraged to participate. 


Sibel Deren Guler is a designer, scientist, and educator based in New York. She researches and develops technology that uses interactivity and computation to explore nature and create playful experiences. Designing accessible tools to improve the quality of life is her key motivator in her work. She has lead award-winning design and engineering projects around the world centered on this theme. She created Teknikio- a series of toolkits that enable you to embed electronics into anything-  in attempt to fill the gap of hands-on science and engineering products for children, especially for young girls. She is currently working on Wearable Recipes, a book about the state of wearables to be published in 2016, along with a never ending list of personal side projects. In addition to Teknikio, she adjuncts at Parsons the New School for Design, and is a co-founder of the FatCatFabLab. 


Time: 6:00 pm

Prerequisites: No prior experience is required.  Workshop open to all NCSU students, staff, and faculty.

Future Wearables Apr 1, 2016 Description:


Wearables are the future of connected devices. As technologies have become smaller and more powerful they have also become easier to integrate into our everyday interactions with the world. Medical implants, smart watches, smart clothing, and many other tools are changing what we do, how we do, and how we work together.  In this workshop Sibel Deren Guler , founder of Teknikio, will help us explore wearable devices and consider how new technologies might change, improve, or augment our lives?


Using electronics and craft materials we’ll work together to prototype future wearable devices.  Drawing inspiration from superheroes, science fiction, and own imaginations, we’ll investigate new ways to interact with technologies, we’ll experiment with new methods of sensing and making sense, and we’ll imagine new futures to explore.


This program was made possible in part through a Diversity Mini-Grant from the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity. Women are especially encouraged to participate. 


Sibel Deren Guler is a designer, scientist, and educator based in New York. She researches and develops technology that uses interactivity and computation to explore nature and create playful experiences. Designing accessible tools to improve the quality of life is her key motivator in her work. She has lead award-winning design and engineering projects around the world centered on this theme. She created Teknikio- a series of toolkits that enable you to embed electronics into anything-  in attempt to fill the gap of hands-on science and engineering products for children, especially for young girls. She is currently working on Wearable Recipes, a book about the state of wearables to be published in 2016, along with a never ending list of personal side projects. In addition to Teknikio, she adjuncts at Parsons the New School for Design, and is a co-founder of the FatCatFabLab. 


Time: 10:00 am

Prerequisites: No prior experience is required.  Workshop open to all NCSU students, staff, and faculty.
