NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS

Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres

33 PROSPECT AVENUE – PRINCETON, NJ

6 P, TUESDAY, June 11th, 2019

Speakers:  Clay Patterson

NE Regional Manager, iD Tech

 

Paul A Durst & Sharon L De La Cruz

Council on Science & Technology, Princeton University

“Challenges in Next-Generation STEM Education:

Connecting the K-12 Experience to College Curricula”

Since 1999, world-renowned iD Tech camps have delivered STEM education (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) to the K-12 set; and from 2010, Princeton University’s Council on Science & Technology has fostered intellectual exchange, interdisciplinary research and collaborations between STEM fields and the arts, humanities and social sciences.  However, while some youngsters take a STEM path early in life, others come to it only in later years.  Providing smoother transitions to college for the former; creating more welcoming entry platforms for the latter; and enhancing STEM’s role in making us all more informed citizens --- are core critical issues our speakers will discuss.

May Propeller (Second Tuesday) ( Tuesday, May 14, 2019 - 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM )

Speaker: Andrew Ippoliti, Technical Lead, BotFactory

“Re-Shaping the Electronic Board Manufacturing Industry:
Making It Better, Faster, Smarter”


While electronics surround us, and innovations occur daily, the actual process of manufacturing electronic devices has changed little in recent decades. So, now may be the time to ask: has the process plateaued? Might electronics be made with more speed, reliability and ease? And --- is it really necessary to rely on so-called experts to manufacture them? The answers may surprise you! BotFactory, an NYC startup, develops desktop machines which not only democratize the creation of electronic boards, but do so with a technology that enables board fabrication by non-experts. Their lead developer, Andrew Ippoliti, will describe just how BotFactory does it. Following a broad historical review of electronic circuit board manufacturing, Andrew’s talk will take us into the rapidly evolving realm of future electronic board fabrication.

PA3 Book Club: April 25, 2019

March 23, 2019 - The book club will meet on Thursday, April 25, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in East Pyne 111. Our selection is:

Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Hodder Fellow at Princeton, 2005-06). 

Here's how it starts: "Princeton, in the summer, smelled of nothing, and although Ifemelu liked the tranquil greenness of the many trees, the clean streets and stately homes, the delicately overpriced shops, and the quiet, abiding air of earned grace, it was this, the lack of a smell, that most appealed to her, perhaps because the other American cities she knew well had all smelled distinctly."
