Technology and Education Converge
The Discovery Lab had the pleasure of being invited to the Technology and Education Converge Town Hall Meeting and meet some of the most amazing minds of the technology industry here in South Florida. The event was hosted by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and was held indoors at Jungle Island. We had the opportunity to show one of our projects, the Telebot, to many of the present, who were baffled with the technological progress that we have had in this past year and a half of development. One comment we very often had was of FIU Alumni that kept insisting on how far has the school developed since they last there there. The event had many great Keynote Speakers including Dr Mark Rosenberg , current president of FIU, as well as many other Technology and Education leaders around South Florida, including Edward Martinez, Chief Information Officer for Miami Children’s Hospital and Dr Helena Solo-Gabriele, Associate Dean for UM College of Engineering. This was surely a great honor for all present, and a great opportunity to showcase the technological achievements of the Computer and Information Science Department and FIU as a whole.
