Good, Peck Present Mary Talk – ‘Making the Future’ – April 19

In the final Mary Talk lecture of this academic year – on Wednesday, April 19, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. – we will hear from faculty in UMW’s College of Education. Kevin Good, Ph.D., assistant professor of special education, and Kristina Peck ’08, associate dean of clinical experiences and partnerships, will discuss “Making the Future.” The lecture will take place online via Zoom. Please register in advance. You will receive a link to the streaming video, which can be watched live or at a later time, and will have the opportunity to submit questions.

What do you see as the future? Who shapes that future, and how? Explore how STEAM education through a “maker mindset” can open doors for learners to be creators of their own destiny. Learn about UMW’s newly opened Makerspace, which gives students real-life practice in science and technology while encouraging creative problem-solving. Be inspired as you hear how the Makerspace engages local schools, making the future brighter for all Fredericksburg-area scholars.
