Description

Please join us for an evening with Dr. Susan E. Powers on Thursday February 22nd and a half day workshop on Friday February 23rd.

Susan Powers is a Spence Professor in Sustainable Enviornmental Systems, and the Associate Director for Sustainability at Clarkson University. In the wide range of classes that Dr. Powers has taught, she focuses on teaching the process of engineering problem solving in a real-world environment. By focusing on complex and relevant environmental problems, the importance of societal impacts and communication can be stressed as well as providing a basis and relevance for technical material needed to address the engineering problem. This approach has been used in classes designed for middle school science and technology subjects, undergraduate environmental engineering lab and capstone design classes, and graduate classes in groundwater flow, physico-chemical processes, and industrial ecology.Her education and scholarly work are integrated through research on aspects of engineering and broader STEM education. She has had several education oriented research grants, including the NSF Director’s Award as a Distinguished Teaching Scholar. Among these efforts, she has promoted and assessed the value of utilizing relevant project-based experiences to improve energy and climate change literacy of middle school, high school and college.
