Seminar

Laura Nichols
"Engineering meets Art"

Friday 9 February 2007 / 12:30 pm
Horizon Scotland / Forres, Scotland

Art and engineering - are they opposites, or can they interact creatively to open up new opportunities?

That's the theme of the next Distance Lab talk, taking place at Horizon Scotland at lunchtime on Friday 9th February.

You are warmly invited to come to hear Laura Nichols of the MIT Media Lab. The title of the talk is "Engineering meets Art", and she will show how engineering concepts can be taught using techniques from art.

Laura is a graduate in mechanical engineering, now enrolled in the Masters programme at the MIT Media Lab in the Future of Learning research group. She makes kinetic sculptures and has been working with several school groups in the area, developing ideas in using art to teach engineering.

Talk starts at 12.30 pm and will be followed by refreshments and sandwiches. Admission is free.
