The 2012 Palm Beach County Science Symposium, which will be held at Park Vista High School, will feature close to 100 interactive workshops designed to:
- Inspire science teachers to challenge students with rigorous science instruction
- Motivate teachers to collaborate and use creative instructional strategies and technology in classrooms to engage all learners in science
- Encourage teachers to embrace change to transform science education in a way that better prepares students for college-level sciences and careers in the STEM fields
In addition to Palm Beach County science teachers, representatives from more than 35 community science organizations will be in attendance.
About Danny Forster
Danny Forster has built a career out of the ingenious solution: celebrating it as a television host, lecturing about it as a speaker and professor and finding it himself as a practicing designer. As the host of the Science Channel series Build It Bigger, Forster travels the world with a camera crew in search of incredible feats of architecture and engineering – a record-setting skyscraper, a city-saving levee, a mammoth cruise ship, a state-of-the-art football stadium.
Forster’s passion for great architecture and his exceptional ability to share that passion have made him a sought-after speaker and a popular teacher. He has delivered keynote addresses at engineering and architecture conferences all over the world. In 2008 he joined the faculty at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, teaching an upper level graduate architecture studio on sustainable design.
Designing pioneering projects for DANNY FORSTER Design Studio, lecturing internationally, and filming for Build it Bigger, Forster is continually at work and on the move creating, explaining, and popularizing ingenious design solutions. He is also at work, closer to home, as creator and executive producer of a documentary series about the rebuilding of Ground Zero. The Rising explores the coming to life of a work of architecture that solves a host of problems – cultural, physical, historical, environmental – within one coherent project.
