Great Problems, Great Minds Seminar Series

September 1, 2020 author:

This new seminar series from the Department of Social Sciences at Illinois Tech is designed to explore the major problems facing humanity as we move into the heart of the 21st century. At a technical school, we often forget that humans play a major role in shaping the implementation of every technical solution that is developed and applied. Major problems faced by society include climate change, food security, energy security, education, poverty, and disease, all of which have partial solutions that have been opposed by segments of society. As we have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, a simple solution like a mask doesn’t work if people don’t accept it.

Tune in for the start of the series on Tuesday, Sept. 1 and catch the rest of the schedule here: https://lnkd.in/eTFfxTE
