Carl giving a talk next tuesday. “Science Education in the 21st Century: Using the Tools of Science to Teach Science”

That is Carl Wieman, Nobel Laureate in Physics (2001). This one is hosted by the Pharmaceutical Sciences Graduate Student Society and their home Faculty. It’s touted as a “professional development workshop” so should be enlightening to many.

Details? November 20th, 12pm in IRC 3 (2194 Health Sciences Mall).

Carl, by the way, heads the UBC Carl Wieman Science Education Initiative. (Hmmm… an initiative named after you – no pressure, eh?), and has pretty much switched his academic gears from looking at Bose–Einstein condensates to focusing on science education.
