Boston's Museum of Science President to give lecture

Clubs and organizations 13 March 2018

Dr Ioannis Miaoulis will be the first guest speaker on the CATS Academy Boston Math Club Lecture Series

Dr Miaoulis has been President and Director of the Museum of Science, Boston since 2003. The museum is one of the world’s largest science centers and New England's most attended cultural institution.

Miaoulis is a frequent speaker on science and technology literacy and has served as a keynote speaker at education reform conferences worldwide.

He built support for the first Engineering Education for Innovation Act and for the Educating Tomorrow's Engineers Act in 2013 and 2015. He also championed the STEM provisions of the Every Student Succeeds Act, adopted by Congress and signed by President Obama in 2015.

On April 10, 2018, Dr Miaoulis will lunch with Math Club members before giving his hour-long lecture entitled − ‘The Science, Technology & Engineering in 21st Century High School.’ (Salon B, CATS Academy Boston). 

Math Club Lecture Series

The idea to organize a series of lectures was devized by Math Club members Uljad Berdica and Nuray Salina who proposed it to their Math Club Advisor and Physics Teacher, Dr Namin.

The intention behind the series of lectures is to present high-level, hands-on discussions on topics related to the STEM disciplines − Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

All students who are interested in the STEM disciplines are invited to the lectures and those wishing to pursue a career in the field of science and technology are encouraged to devize a lecture of their own.

Uljad Berdica will be the first student contributor to the series. On April 4, Uljad will present his newly designed software application and his lecture – ‘Mathematics of Geometric Modeling using the new Software Application’.

Math Club Advisor Dr Namin is keen to point out that the lecture series is a student-led initiative and a result of “the talented group of students we have at CATS Academy Boston”. He adds that their commitment and focused scientific study will pave the way “to prestigious universities and careers”.

Dr Miaoulis has positioned the Boston Museum of Science to take the lead on advancing the ‘goal of educating a scientifically and technologically literate citizenry’. Our students appear to be fully embracing this ethos too!
