Special Initiatives

TEDx, WBEZ Science of Pop Culture Films, Leakey Foundation, Stewart Lab Project, CPS Guest Seminar Speakers

Science in Society partners with other outreach organizations on events aimed at bringing science to the public.

In November 2010, SiS helped organize Northwestern University’s first TEDx event, called “Identity,” which explored how scientific research is redefining who we think we are. For the past two years, we have worked with The Leakey Foundation to help promote lectures at The Field Museum, such as “Why We Are, What We Are, Where We Are” with Dr. Alexander Harcourt. SiS also partnered with Chicago Public Media to publish Dr. Harcourt’s lecture on WBEZ’s Chicago Amplified website.

Other special initiatives include installing Northwestern lab cabinetry at Stewart Elementary School in Uptown, and organizing CPS guest seminar speakers.
