THE FIELDS INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH IN MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES
20th ANNIVERSARY YEAR

April 1, 2013-March 31, 2014
Art/Science Salon
Subtle Technologies

 
ArtSci Salon consists of a series of semi-informal gatherings facilitating discussion and cross-pollination between science, technology and the arts. ArtSci Salon started in 2010 as a spin-off of Subtle Technologies Festival (http://www.subtletechnologies.com) to satisfy increasing demands by the audience attending the Festival to have a more frequent (monthly or bi-monthly) outlet for debate and information sharing across disciplines. In addition, it responds to the recent expansion in the GTA area of a community of scientists and artists increasingly seeking collaborations across disciplines to successfully accomplish their research projects and inquiries.

New Approaches to Science Visualization

Bonnie J. Scott
Bridging entertainment and education: The art of designing video games to teach science

Bonnie will be discussing how she became a biomedical communicator and her work in the exciting new area of educational science video games. She is passionate about designing meaningful user experiences that educate people about healthcare and scientific issues while leveraging interactive and multimedia technologies. Her area of specialization is in molecular visualization and exploring how games can be used to teach science in schools, public spaces, and corporate environments.

BIO: Bonnie Scott is currently an Associate of Biomedical Communication at Bridgeable (www.bridgeable.com), a boutique research and design firm in Toronto. She is a recent graduate of the Master of Science in Biomedical Communications from the University of Toronto and has a PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology from The University of Chicago. Some of her work can be seen at www.snaremedia.ca.
