Woodrow Wilson Academy Scholarship Competition
Think back on your experience learning science, technology, engineering or math (STEM). Not just the learning you did in school—but in all those different places where real learning happened for you…in a library, a lab, a park, a museum, a kitchen. What if you could create an experience like that, something that helps students get excited about math or science? Maybe it helps them understand something they see all the time. Maybe it explains why the world is as it is, or what the world could be.
At the WW Academy, we’re out to change how teaching by redesigning learning. And we’re looking for people to join us in our mission.
So here’s the challenge: Identify what worked really well in your moments of real learning about STEM, and use your insights to fix what didn’t work. Design a great way for middle or high school students to learn an essential STEM skill or understanding.
The experience you design could happen in school (perhaps by helping students learn algebraic thinking in the lunchroom), or on the way (for example, in a school bus that builds growth mindset), or somewhere else entirely (astrophysics at the food truck?).
You may submit your solution in any format you choose: in a video, a physical prototype, a website, an annotated sketch—or something else entirely.

Clavius Distinguished Lecture Comets, Craters, and Calendars: Christopher Clavius, S.J. (1538 - 1612)
Monday, October 1, 2018 | 1 p.m.
Bepler Commons | Faber Hall
Rose Hill Campus
In this year marking the 480th anniversary of the birth of Christopher Clavius, S.J., it seems appropriate for this lecture series, named in his honor, to focus on his life and legacy. That legacy ranges from the Gregorian calendar, which is the calendar that we all use today, to the Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey. It ranges from popular textbooks to worldwide curricular reform. And it ranges from the history of science in China to the Vatican Observatory, which Pope Gregory XIII established in 1580 to help confirm and refine astronomical observations made in support of Clavius’ reform of the Gregorian calendar. Paul Mueller, S.J., who serves as vice director of the modern-day Vatican Observatory, will explore Clavius’ life and work in their early-modern context and illuminate his enduring legacy for modern science, religion, and culture.

Applications of Behavior-based Authentication in the Business World
This talk will look at the applications of behavior-based authentication in the business world and how it has been affected by research. We’ll look at the field as a whole, and also at the vision for us at TwoSense, and demonstrate that this is a problem that is insoluble without the application of machine learning. We will then take a deeper look at the machine learning challenges that must be overcome, and a few novel solutions from our labs. We will then look at some of the lessons learned from deploying behavioral biometrics in the wild in product settings. From there, we will look at some research methodology issues that we’ve come across and conclude by proposing a few best practices for the behavioral biometrics community.
