“Explore Science in Second Life!”

A public presentation and consultation of members for a joint educational journey.
Facilitated by Phil Youngblood / SL: Vic Michalak

Where = SC Auditorium
When (Start) = 6 AM and 10 AM PDT (‘Second Life’ Time) Saturday 14 September

 

Let us explore science together in Second Life!

We will start our journey by reaching a common understanding of the nature of ‘science’ and STE(A)M and by visiting sites on Science Circle island. During subsequent weeks, we will explore the various fields of science and STEAM in general and find examples in Second Life.

As we journey together, let us set a goal to develop a guide to science in Second Life and other open sources for the purpose of promoting dialogue and education across STEAM disciplines.

My aim in facilitating our journey is to create a sustainable forum for learning the science behind the news, our Science Circle presentations, and our daily life encounters. I would like our meetings to be welcoming to novices, inviting to experts, and engaging for everyone.

We will meet for one hour each session. You are welcome to attend any sessions you are able. Weekly sessions may include STEAM topics, field trips, ‘scavenger hunts’, building things, visits by experts, and finding answers to questions you have and to global issues.

Information about past and upcoming sessions will be posted on the Science Circle website so you can ‘catch up’ on what you missed and know what is coming next. We are also planning an online discussion area where you can pose or answer questions.

As we gauge interest in this complement to our presentations, we may create a formal course in which you can register and receive benefits of membership. For those interested, there will be ‘homework’ between sessions consisting of places to visit in Second Life or online that will help reinforce session activities or prepare for the next sessions.
