Discover Science Lecture Series—Thursday, February 6

Speaker: William F. Tate IV, Washington University
Topic: Is Space + Race > STEM Opportunity?

“William F. Tate IV is the Edward Mallinckrodt Distinguished University Professor in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis. He currently serves as Dean of the Graduate School and Vice Provost for Graduate Education.

Tate’s lecture is titled “Is Space + Race > STEM Opportunity?” According to Tobler’s first law of geography, “Everything is related to everything else, but near things are more related than distant things.” This lecture describes the implications of this law for opportunity to learn in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education. Using geospatial methods, Tate illustrates the relationship between place and STEM attainment.

The Discover Science Lecture Series is always free and open to the public. Lectures start at 7 pm at the Davidson Math and Science Center, Room 110. Free parking is available on the top level of the Brian Whalen Parking Complex.”
