UCSB faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students discuss what we have learned over the last six years from research about what worked in stimulating achievement among Black children and what challenges African American learners face. Keynote speakers Na'ilah Suad Nasir from UC Berkeley and Tyrone Howard from UCLA. Moderated by UC Santa Barbara Professor Jeffrey Stewart.

"It's not taking pilots out of planes. It's putting propellers on smart phones." So says Chris Anderson, co-founder of 3D Robotics describing "Solo," the world's first Smart Drone. Anderson was among a group of leading engineers in unmanned aerial vehicles gathered on the USS Midway to inspire San Diego students to consider careers in high technology. Others on board included Mike Atwood and Darren Moe of General Atomics describing the military missions of the "Predator" UAV, George Guerre of Northrop Grumman adding how its "Global Hawk" drone is also used for weather surveillance and other humanitarian purposes and finally, Mike Veale of San Diego Zoo Safari Park touched many in the audience by explaining how he plans to use drones to stop the poaching of rhinos and elephants in Africa. This event was presented as part of the STEAM Leadership Series, created by Intellectual Capital, KidsEcoClub and the Education Synergy Alliance. Recorded on 06/05/2015.
