Join us on April 5-7 for a series of events designed to showcase the art and science of effective data visualization. A key aspect of scholarship in the 21st century is the collection and analysis of ever-growing data sets, both within and across various subject areas. We are tasked with discerning hidden patterns in gargantuan quantities of data, as well as communicating our findings to research communities, policy makers, and the general public.
Friday, March 25
401 Lerner Hall
Studying for midterms? Wondering if you could study better? Caroline Marvin from the Psychology department will share how research findings from cognitive neuroscience can help you develop stronger study skills. We'll leverage what we know about learning and the brain to discuss why strategies we commonly use don't work and to suggest strategies that save time and get results.
This hands-on, sequential 3-session workshop will provide practical tools for couples who wish to strengthen their relationship.

A Book Talk with Stuart Firestein, Professor in the Biological Sciences Department at Columbia University || Failure: Why Science Is So Successful | This book delves into the origins of scientific research as a process that relies upon trial and error, one which inevitably results in a hefty dose of failure. In fact, scientists throughout history have relied on failure to guide their research, viewing mistakes as a necessary part of the process.
So you have a Raspberry Pi and you’re not afraid to use it, but … what now? What can you do with it? What do you want to do with it?
