iCon: Innovating the World

Innovating the World

Technology and creativity shape the future, and right now, scientific and artistic innovation are addressing rapidly-developing problems. Innovating the World invites students to analyze the development of inventive scientific and artistic practices, and use this analysis to chart and even realize future change.

Students strengthen their sense of agency to determine for themselves how to tackle given problems in any environment that is continually evolving. As agents of change, students cultivate maturity and compassion in order to appreciate societal complexity and understand the part they can play in the larger whole.
