Crossroads Series: Science + Design
- This event has passed.
Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya is a creative director with a neuroscience background who founded The Leading Strand, an organization that uses design to shine a light on scientific research, and Beyond Curie, an artistic effort to highlight 35 outstanding women in STEM fields.
In this kickoff of the College of Sciences Crossroads Series, she’ll give a behind-the-scenes look at how these collaborations came together (both the good and the bad) and share ideas and insights into how we can bring designers, the media and other collaborators together to further appreciation and understanding of science.
The event will also feature an interactive display of Phingbodhipakkiya’s artwork, and attendees will receive a free small print of one of her illustrations of amazing women in science. A reception will follow. This event is free and open to the public, but registration is encouraged. If you will be joining us from off-campus, free parking is available in the Coliseum Parking Deck beginning at 2 p.m. (parking restrictions will not be enforced so you will be able to park in this deck without an NC State parking permit).
About the Series
The Crossroads Series is where science meets the human experience. In the spirit of the Crossroads Building envisioned for the heart of campus, the College of Sciences is bringing together big thinkers from across disciplines for events that tackle issues at the intersection of science and society.
