Attend the next NAE Grand Challenges for Engineering lecture — Education Through Exploration, March 5

Posted by on Feb 27, 2020 in Customize your experience, Events, Fulton Schools, Opportunities, Participation, Research |

Humanity faces challenges that have never been faced before. To meet them, humanity must transform learning to embrace exploration of the unknown, not just mastery of what is known, at societal scale. Digital technologies are the key to realizing this potential, but to date most educational technology has focused on widening access to traditional mastery models of teaching and learning. This presentation will describe how the Center for Education Through Exploration at ASU is working with NASA and others to pioneer new approaches to meet this challenge.

Apply for the 2020 Flagship Pioneering Fellowship

Posted by on Feb 7, 2020 in Graduate Students, Opportunities, Research |

Pioneering is best done in teams, and is a process that can be taught, learned and replicated. Flagship Pioneering is looking for extraordinary scientists, engineers, physicians and entrepreneurs to learn this process and work alongside individuals within the Flagship Ecosystem who are defined by their passion, boldness and creative optimism. Pioneer culture is to collaborate, encourage failure, trust one another and celebrate successful solutions to hard problems. Diversity of opinion is respected, and value is placed on the freedom to explore hunches.

Flagship Pioneering Fellows work in teams, starting with  “What if” or “If only” and a blank sheet of paper, relying not on literature but on their scientific instincts and creativity to generate novel scientific concepts that challenge dogma. Flagship Pioneering Fellows learn to variate, iterate and shape these ideas into unreasonable yet compelling venture hypotheses.

Apply to be a Flagship Pioneering Fellow


  • 12 Week Full-time fellowship: Monday, June 1, 2020–Friday, August 21, 2020
