The Edison Lecture Series is an interactive STEM learning experience that engages middle and high school students with the fun side of electrical and computer engineering. Edison attendees learn the fundamentals of an engineering topic through a university-style lecture, then see these concepts come to life through hands-on demos. Be part of the excitement!
The Edison Lecture Series will take place in February at The University of Texas at Austin’s new Engineering Education and Research building. This year’s topic is Autonomous Vehicles. It has become easy to imagine a world in which no human need apply for a driving license. This year’s Edison will examine issues ranging from superhuman sensing, computer vision, navigation and much more … all with an eye towards enabling autonomous roadways in the near future.
