Sponsored by: DFD Educational and Career Outreach Committee
Organizer: Jesse Capecelatro, University of Michigan
Contact: Jesse Capecelatro, University of Michigan, jcaps@umich.edu

This year’s Fluids Education Workshop will address using technology effectively within the classroom including demos, in addition to incorporating technology/models into homework assignments. The workshop will consist of a 30-minute panel discussion and 30-minute demonstrations.

All the Faces of Fluid Dynamics

Time/Location: Lunch (time will be specified after abstract sorting), Conference Center, Rm: Tahoma 5
Sponsored by: DFD Media and Science Relations Committee
Organizer David Hu, Georgia Institute of Technology
Contact: David Hu, Georgia Institute of Technology, hu@me.gatech.edu

Four women engineers will speak in a panel discussion about their personal experiences successfully increasing diversity in the workplace.  Speakers will include MIT Professor and Associate Dean Peko Hosoi, Founder of F*** Yeah Fluid Dynamics, Nicole Sharp, Johns Hopkins Assistant Professor Dennice Gayme, and UC Riverside Assistant Professor Monica Martinez-Wilhelmus.  The focus this year will be on getting diverse faces into the media and recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce. This workshop will help to give under-represented members of APS, especially students, a safe place where their voice can be heard.  Lunch will be served.
