Fall 2011

 

THE INTERSECTION OF SCIENCE AND ART

For Fall 2011, the NJIT Technology and Society Forum offers presentations that are inspirational and cautionary. The complementary dynamic of art and science is a force that can inspire imaginative, positive change for society — change that also requires effective analysis and resolution of complex challenges.
