During the chat we consider the following questions among others:

  • What topics and questions discussed thus far have been most important, controversial, enlightening, interesting or otherwise engaging?
  • What are the key remaining obstacles to true transformation in engineering education and K-12 #STEM education?
  • What, where, and with whom are the key opportunities for near-term transformative change in engineering and STEM ed?
  • As the wraps come off the Big Beacon this year, what are the greatest opportunities for collaborative disruption of the status quo?
  • What are the most important line items in the Big Beacon Manifesto and why?  (Examine before or during the chat)
  • What chapter of the book A Whole New Engineer is most important and why? (Examine before or during the chat)

Join us for the last chat before summer. #BigBeacon chats will resume following summer break on Wednesday, August 27th at 8pm EST.

Join us tomorrow – Wednesday, June 25, 2014, 8 pm EST on #BigBeacon
