QCN Featured in TEDx Talk

Project collaborator Debi Kilb gave a TEDx talk on ‘Using Videogames to Cultivate Future Scientists’ which includes a videogame created around the QCN project. Check out the video of her talk here.

Associate Project Scientist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, studies crustal seismology and earthquake source physics. As a spokesperson for Scripps, she responds to local and national media outlets like CNN and Good Morning America following local and global earthquakes. As science director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s Visualization Center, she and her team host hundreds of education and outreach events. Her goal was not to teach but to engage, not to lecture but to inspire curiosity. Her passion is to explore the unexplored and she is addicted to that spark in someone’s eyes when they “get something.”

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
