Dean Parks Colloquia Series Hosts 'Experiments at Intersections'

The latest installment in the Christopher Newport University Dean William Parks Colloquia Series is titled “Experiments at Intersections.” Guest speaker Hugo Van Vuuren describes the lecture as “a jaunt through the history and process of innovation from classical Athens to modern America.” The lecture will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 10, at 5:30 p.m. in The Freeman Center, Room 201. No reservation is required.

Van Vuuren is an entrepreneurial graduate student at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and student fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society. He helped launch The Laboratory at Harvard, a new interdisciplinary platform for idea experimentation and exhibition in the arts and sciences. A perpetual experimenter, Van Vuuren has been awarded fellowships at TED, Poptech and the Aspen Ideas Festival, and won the 2009 Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award for off-grid energy work.

This lecture is co-sponsored by Lambda Pi Eta and IEEE Student Branch at CNU. Lecture is free and open to the public.
