The Silesian University of Technology is conducting a series of six interactive online scientific lectures intended for secondary school pupils. Their topics are related to scientific issues that scientists deal with within the Priority Research Areas of the University.
The subject of the project entitled "Proven, learned - a series of six interactive scientific lectures combined with online broadcast", which received funding from the Metropolitan Fund for Science Support GZM, is the organization and production of scientific lectures in a hybrid version, in which participation will be possible both remotely and on-site. The lectures, which are practical learning of the topics covered, will focus on the topics developed in six Priority Research Areas,
- Computational oncology and personalized medicine
- Artificial intelligence and data processing
- The materials of the future
- Smart cities, mobility of the future
- Process automation and Industry 4.0
- Climate and environmental protection, modern energy
The series began with a lecture given by dr hab. Eng. Paweł Kasprowski, prof. SUT, who is the coordinator of POB (Priority Research Area) 2 Artificial Intelligence and Data Processing. The topic of the class was an introduction to machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Another lecture titled: “The genius of Gauss, or a few words about the normal distribution" was conducted by dr Eng. Joanna Żyła and dr Eng. Justyna Mika from the Department of Data Science and Engineering at the Faculty of Automatic Control, Electronics and Computer Science of the Silesian University of Technology. They talked about the use of statistical methods to better diagnose and treat diseases. They conduct their research under POB 1 Computational oncology and personalized medicine.
Scientists carrying out research under POB 6 Climate and environmental protection, modern energy showed students what is invisible. Dr hab. Eng. Edyta Kudlek, dr Eng. Katarzyna Moraczewska-Majkut and dr Eng. Witold Nocoń from the Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering of the Silesian University of Technology talked about the macro threats posed by microparticles and how microplastics penetrate water and how to avoid it.
The next broadcast will take place on December 12th at 11:40. Dr Eng. Szymon Surma from the Department of Railway Transport, Faculty of Transport and Aviation Engineering, will show how to control railway traffic in a modern studio.
We cordially invite you to watch and actively participate online, there will be a live chat and the opportunity to contact the host.
Participating in interactive lectures is an opportunity to expand knowledge in the field of exact sciences and to enrich the school curriculum with data and achievements of the most important fields of modern industry. It is also an opportunity to develop passions and interests and learn about the offer and methods of education at the Silesian University of Technology, the highest-ranked university in the province. Silesian.
The main goal of organizing interactive scientific lectures is to popularize scientific research among secondary school students as a necessary condition for the development of an innovative knowledge-based economy and to raise awareness of the benefits of pursuing studies in technical fields. We cordially invite you to participate!
The project "Proven, learned - a series of six interactive scientific lectures combined with online broadcast" was co-financed by the Upper Silesian-Zagłębie Metropolis under the "Metropolitan Fund for Science Support in 2022-2024".
