A Ganders Lecture Series and Syracuse Symposium “Landscapes” Event

Interactive makerspaces and digital technologies can be generative and empowering spaces for minoritized youth to use STEM- and STEAM-based knowledge for creative expression, to foster community and belonging, and as a means to collectively work on “problems worth solving” (Tan, 2017).

Join for interactive demos of current research and creative projects engaging local CNY youth, Syracuse University students, and beyond.

Includes a talk with:

  • Edna Tan, Ph.D., Hooks Distinguished Professor of STEM Education, University of North Carolina at Greensboro

And a panel discussion where Tan will be joined by:

Followed by a reception with light refreshments and a live student DJ!

The Ganders Lecture Series memorializes Harry S. Ganders, the School of Education’s first dean, and his wife, Elva. The lecture was established by the Ganders’ daughters and is also supported by alumni and other contributions to the Harry S. and Elva K. Ganders Memorial Fund. Supported by the Syracuse University Humanities Center Syracuse Symposium event series, under the 2023-24 “Landscapes” theme.
