Capital University will welcome David Pogue as the featured speaker for the 18th annual Symposium on Undergraduate Scholarship. The event is free and open to the public. A book-signing will follow.
Pogue is the anchor columnist for Yahoo Tech, a columnist for Scientific American, a host on PBS’s NOVA, and one of the world's bestselling how-to authors. He wrote or co-wrote seven books in the "for Dummies" series (including Macs, Magic, Opera and Classical Music); in 1999, he launched his own series of complete, funny computer books called the Missing Manual series, which now includes 120 titles.
He will discuss Why America’s Failing Science & How We Can Turn it Around. The keynote lecture will precede the Symposium on Undergraduate Scholarship, an annual showcase of intellectual achievement, scholarly collaboration and discovery that occurs as a result of Capital’s robust faculty-mentored undergraduate research program. The symposium will take place on Wednesday, April 16.
