Why Representation Matters: Voices from TOC II Scholars

11:00 a.m. – Noon • 232 Marano Campus Center

Sponsor: School of Education: Teacher Opportunity Corps, Nichole Brown and Ashley Kirkland

The New York State Department of Education recently awarded sixteen colleges and universities with grant money to increase the number of historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged individuals entering and being retained in teaching fields. SUNY Oswego’s School of Education, was one of the schools awarded funding, $325,000 a year for five years, totaling $1.63, to continue efforts to recruit, prepare and graduate candidates to diversify the teaching workforce. In this panel discussion the participants will talk about why representation matters, and how they believe TOC has helped develop them as future teachers to be changed agents in teaching all students in high-needs schools. They will share their personal stories of why they want to teach in urban areas, as well as, some of the highs and lows of preparation for teaching. This 60 minute session will allow for each scholar to share and for interactive dialog and Q & As. Ashley Kirkland, Lead TOC II Scholar, will be the moderator.

High Data Rate Secure Wireless Communications

11:30 a.m. – Noon • 132 Marano Campus Center

Sponsor: Wireless Technology, Pat Parimi

In a world of ever increasing demand for high speed and secure access to information, there is an inherent necessity for improvement in the manner the data are transmitted. With the current 4G wireless communication systems’ hardware approaching the limits of what is physically possible, and traditional methodologies of data encryption so often proving insufficient for protecting users’ data, non-traditional ideas for achieving these tasks must begin to be considered. Such a technology would pose immediate and tremendous interest to those in the business of high data rate, secure communications. The development of precisely this potentially revolutionary piece of technology is the focus of the work. We are working on designing, developing, fabricating, and testing a piece of equipment which could potentially allow for data to be sent at much higher rates than could be possible with existing technologies, and which simultaneously offers encryption of user data at the wireless hardware level. The technology currently under development will offer a novel method of data encryption using a new signal modulation method.

Planetarium Presentation: The Precession of the Earth’s Rotational Axis

3:00 – 3:30 p.m. • Planetarium, 223 Shineman Center

Sponsor: Physics - Planetarium, John Zielinski

Besides the familiar motions of the Earth’s daily turning around its rotational axis and its orbit around the sun, the Earth also has a less well know motion called precession. Precession is the slow “wobble” of the Earth’s rotational axis, like the wobble of a spinning top. This motion causes changes to the locations of the constellations in our sky, the calendar, and to the Earth’s climate. The precessional motion will be simulated in the planetarium and the changes to the calendar and Earth’s climate will be discussed.

Potential for Interdisciplinary Involvement in the Development of SUNY Oswego’s Planetarium Shows

3:30 – 4:00 p.m. • Planetarium, 223 Shineman Center

Sponsor: Physics - Planetarium, Richard Freiman

Two new planetarium shows built by Richard Frieman entered circulation during the 17-18 academic year: one about Black Holes and another about Einstein’s Theories of Relativity. Both of these shows depart from the norms of previous shows offered at SUNY Oswego’s planetarium because they are fully scripted and pre-recorded, feature original animations, and experiment with the usage of filmed clips. Future fully-scripted shows would benefit greatly with increased cooperation with members of other departments. An idealized team would involve musicians, writers, graphic designers and even actors from around the college. During this presentation, ways of getting involved to various degrees will be discussed.

RMI Club Collaboration with Meteorology Club: “How Has Severe Weather Affected Insurance Premiums?”

3:30 – 4:00 p.m. • 208 Marano Campus Center

Sponsor: School of Business, Mary Rodgers

The Risk Management and Insurance Club will present its results after collaborating with the Meteorology Club to explore the research question: What Is Extreme Weather, When Did It Start, and What are its Effects on Property Insurance Premiums? The study will compare the changes in property insurance premiums by state over time to see if there is a correlation between weather events and insurance premiums.

“RMI Club Collaboration with Meteorology Club: ‘How Has Severe Weather Affected Insurance Premiums?’”

 Cameron Wunderlin, Nick Zingaro, Jeffrey Steinhoff, Lars Ohlsen, Krystal Yasruel and Matthew Glasgow

Current Issues in Technology in Law

Tours of the Solar System

4:00 – 4:30 p.m. • Planetarium, 223 Shineman Center

Sponsor: Physics - Planetarium, Scott Roby

Different tours are designed for different audiences and programs. A brief tour is suitable for learning the order of the planets for grade schoolers or summarizing an earlier planet discussion. Longer tours can be designed to emphasize other topics like the number of planetary missions that have been sent to each planet, the places we might search for life, or the number of moons each planet has. These longer ones are more suitable for high schoolers or college students.

Planetarium Presentation: Astronomical Subjects in the Works of Dante, Swift, and Verne

4:30 – 5:00 p.m. • Planetarium, 223 Shineman Center
