The Girls Achieving in Mathematics, Engineering, Science (GAMES) program aims to promote girls' interest and self-efficacy in STEM using chess and other strategy games. We have chosen to focus on strategy games because they are great examples of effective and entertaining tools to teach metacognition, computational thinking, and problem-solving. NIMBioS is cooperating with the GAMES program to host a series of virtual events.
Date: 4 p.m. EDT, August 20, 2020
Speaker: Dr. Ozlem Kilic, Associate Dean for Student Affairs, Tickle College of Engineering, University of Tennessee
Topic: One girl's journey in engineering – Pave your own path!
Dr. Kilic talks about her work related to electronic engineering and shares her career experiences as a scientist. This webinar is designed for middle school students and their parents.
Dr. Ozlem Kilic is the Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs for the Tickle College of Engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Before this, she was a Professor and served as the Associate Dean of Engineering at the Catholic University of America. She was also an electronics engineer at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, where she managed Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Programs for the development of hybrid numerical electromagnetic tools. Dr. Kilic's research interests include antennas, wave propagation, satellite communications systems, microwave remote sensing, computational electromagnetics, and high performance computing for electromagnetic and other applications.
This webinar was streamed live and recorded for later viewing. NIMBioS hosted a Q&A via Zoom. Viewers were able to submit questions throughout the talk, which were answered at the end of the talk.Webinar slides (pdf)
