Power of Open Source Technology

and How to Take Advantage of It

 

Generically, open source refers to a program in which the source code is available to the general public for use and/or modification from its original design free of charge, i.e., open. Open source code is typically created as a collaborative effort in which programmers improve upon the code and share the changes within the community. Open source sprouted in the technological community as a response to proprietary software owned by corporations.

 

Guest Speaker: Carter Tatge/STEM Fuse

STEM Fuse is an educational resource provider that specializes in developing web based STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) curriculum.

We use gaming & game development as the tool for students to learn technical skills like programming and graphic design while also learning skills like how to problem solve using the engineering design cycle, how to work in a development team and how crucial math & physics calcualtions and concepts are to making computer games.

Our goal is simple - help our schools attract students to STEM courses and inspire those students to pursue additional STEM related courses, degrees and careers.

 

On Wednesday evenings meter parking is free in Center City after 5!
