Demonstrations for middle-school girls for AAUW Tech Trek, 2006-2009
I've also been involved with a few other programs for kids,
such as Coder Dojo at Los Alamos Makers.
Science presentations for general audiences:
I love talking about science, particularly astronomy and geology.
Most of these talks are suitable for anyone but can be beefed up
for more technical audiences.
I have some short talks ready to go on topics such as
"Walking the San Andreas fault",
"Observing the moon" and "Moon rocks",
"How do airplanes fly?",
"Cosmology and dark matter",
Plus Longer tutorials on
"Programming in Python",
"Observing the Moon",
Short talks (e.g. for Toastmasters meetings or Ignite):
Short 5-20 minute talks on a wide range of topics with titles like:
"The Glower Hour",
"Drive Like a Racer!",
"Better Technical Presentations",
"Stone Soup for the Milennium",
"The Genesis Rock".
Some are specific to issues of technology in society, such as
open source, open data, privacy, DRM, data literacy.
If you'd like to see a presentation on one of these topics
(or a related subjects), please mail me!
