I was invited to give a guest lecture at the University of Colorado Boulder about The New Science. The class was an electrical engineering freshman seminar where they get a taste of the possibilities of what engineering careers could look like. Even as an electrical engineering alumni of CU Boulder, I have a feeling my talk may have been a little different from what other folks are doing. Regardless, there were quite a number of students that came up to me afterwards to say the talk really resonated with them. They also were concerned about how science and engineering can be reconciled with living a fulfilling and socially conscious life.
The core of my talk about was about reclaiming science as a tool for finding personal fulfilment and developing tools for a better world.
