Q&A with Kathryn Hollar

first_imgKathryn Hollar, a chemical engineer by training, grew up in a family that encouraged her interest in science. Now she is director of educational programs at the Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, where she teaches the public. She calls her program “science for K to gray.” In an interview with Harvard staff writer Lauren Marshall, Hollar talked about science and how parents and their children can learn it together.Q: Why is science so important?A. When I take children on a campus tour, I always introduce them to the first computer ever developed. It’s on display in Harvard’s Science Center: 50 feet long, taller than a person, and about two feet wide. In its day, around the time of the Second World War, it served some important functions around national security. While we discuss this mammoth structure, I ask my students: “How many of you use a cell phone? How many use a computer? Now, how would you like to carry something like that computer in your pocket?” That is what science can do for you.Science has revolutionized our lives. It’s changed how we communicate with each other. It can make you safer. Children can call their parents on their cell phones. And scientists and engineers are responsible for that. Computers not only help with national security. There are so many other ways science and engineering touch our lives each day, including human health, sanitation, even warmth and protection of your bodies.Q. Why is it critical for school-age children? What are we trying to teach our kids through science?A. School-age children have an innate curiosity and a natural desire to invent. Our job is to nurture that interest, to keep our children curious and inventing. Children will have to learn skills along the way. Let’s face it. Some inventions of fourth-graders aren’t entirely feasible. They need tools like math to figure out if something’s going to work or not. Math is incredibly useful in helping us predict how systems work, and is an essential tool for science and engineering. Children also need an understanding of physics, chemistry, and biology.Q. As an educator, how do you turn children on to science?A. We have an annual holiday lecture in December that draws approximately 1,000 children and their families each year to learn about a particular aspect of science. This year the theme was germs. Last year it was chocolate. The year before, we did the science of pizza. We try to show that science is in everyday things, and give families the opportunity to celebrate science together.Another program, Project Teach, gives middle school children at local schools a chance to talk to Harvard researchers and students about science and college. People who do science every day get children really excited about science and encourage them to find out what courses they should be thinking about taking in the sciences. Middle school is a crucial time to start preparing yourself for any opportunity you want to take advantage of in the future.Q. What challenges do students face in the sciences?A. In the context of pursuing a career in science, there may be a lack of local role models who have careers in science and engineering, so children don’t have the exposure early on to what it means to have that kind of career. Combined with some of the traditional stereotypes of scientists and engineers we see in the media, children without science and engineering role models may not see people with whom they can identify themselves in science or engineering careers. However, there are a lot of great resources on the Internet that parents and their children can explore together.Also, I think it may be a question of children not really understanding what they need to do to be successful. TV gives children the perception that things can be resolved in 30 minutes, or at least really quickly. That is not always the case. Any success in life is the product of perseverance, and it’s important in the sciences and engineering. If you want to be a great musician, or a great basketball player, you need to practice to become better. The same is true of becoming a scientist or engineer.Q. What can a parent do to help their child in school?A. Make sure your children are doing their homework.■ Talk to their teachers and school administrators.■ Find opportunities for your child outside of school.■ Let a child know it’s OK to try something that is foreign to them.■ And, last but not least, let them know it’s OK to fail, as long as you pick yourself back up.Failing is as important as success. It teaches them how to persevere. And it’s not just a skill essential to science and engineering. It’s important that our children take on challenges outside their comfort zone.Even though a parent may know about a subject, they may not know how to teach it. If you don’t know everything you need to know to help your child directly, you can get them the support they need — whether through additional tutoring at school or mentoring — that can help them succeed academically.Q. What can a parent do to encourage interest or advancement in the sciences at home?A. There are fun experiments to do in your kitchen. In fact, there’s a lot of science in a kitchen. And the great thing is, almost everybody I know has a kitchen or access to one.When you wash dishes, look at the bubbles. There’s a lot of science there, a lot of chemistry there. If you put soap in the water, does a paper clip float or does it sink? The best scientists are the ones who are very good observers. Teaching a child to be curious about the smallest things is very good.Encourage your child to ask questions. Validate that they have asked a good question. If you don’t know the answer, try to help them find answers to their questions. Work on the problem together.You don’t have to have a college education to help your child be successful. My parents didn’t go to college. They just cared and found opportunities for me outside the home, so I could explore my interest in science. And in the end, I discovered a good career for me.last_img read more

The Link Between IT Maturity and Killer Business KPIs

first_imgWhen Shlomo Bistry of Bank Leumi thinks about the future, he “feels like a passenger on the train. The way is very clear.” The Israeli bank is 115 years old, but it’s moving with speed and purpose. Bank Leumi is transforming its IT infrastructure from a traditional environment to the cloud, redefining itself with mobility and customer-centricity in mind.Traditional brick-and-mortar banks are at a crossroads in their business models. Customers demand ease of access, and prefer to bank when and where they choose, rather than make time to visit their local branches. Thanks to transformative technologies, Bank Leumi customers experience an entire banking ecosystem in the palm of their hands, whether they’re stretched out on a sofa or at the top of a mountain.  However, while Bank Leumi serves as a strong example of IT maturity, their story is still a rare one.In fact, as Dell EMC’s and Intel’s research with Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) shows in its most recent IT Transformation Maturity study, only 6 percent of the market features fully transformed organizations (just a 1 percent improvement from last year). That is an eye-opening number given the pressures on business to keep up with advances in digital technologies, and competitive disruptors squeezing legacy institutions’ historical market share.The Maturity study, based on research with 4,000 IT decision-makers across 16 countries, reveals that the majority of businesses fall into the bottom two groups of ”legacy” and “emerging”, as opposed to the more advanced states of ”evolving” and ”transformed”. The majority — 81 percent — of respondents are worried that if they don’t embrace IT Transformation, their companies will fail to compete within a transforming marketplace. That number has grown 10 percent in the past year.The findings show too many businesses are stuck in a technology lag. ESG states “increased urgency is warranted.” That’s one way of saying business leaders are hearing alarm bells that their businesses must transform, or risk their futures as technology further evolves in the next era of human-machine partnerships.Reaping the rewards, many times overThe ESG IT Transformation Maturity study also links IT Transformation to business agility, innovation, and value using key metrics that would get attention in any boardroom.By missing that link, too many businesses are also missing out on a powerful combination of business benefits, including the potential to reinvigorate and redefine their futures.Innovation is driving human progress and society. However, if only a minority seize the transformational torch, the innovation gap will widen and opportunities will be lost.Rio Grande Pacific (RGP), a Texas-based holding company for regional freight railroads, is another example of a legacy business model grabbing hold of its transformed future. RGP CIO Jason Brown recently explained how a centuries-old industry is adapting, by tying its future to technology and creating the RIOT (Railway Internet of Things) domain.ESG found that companies like RGP, that have modernized data center technologies, automated their IT processes, and aligned their business and IT protocols (that is, achieved IT maturity) are 18 times faster to market and 16 times more innovative. In RGP’s case, it increased speed of services tenfold.When we talk about IT transformation, we are also talking about improving the financial health of the business. IT Transformation is not another IT project. It’s a journey that requires buy-in, and collaboration, from both IT and business leaders. The benefits of transformation free up resources to reinvest back into the business. In the end, it is about creating an agile, dynamic business, more highly-skilled, better-equipped team members, and simplified IT processes that can deliver optimal outcomes for their consuming business partners.It’s no coincidence that transformed businesses are twice as likely to exceed their revenue targets in the past year compared to legacy organizations.  Just last month, IDC and Dell EMC revealed that study participants (transformed organizations) will realize revenue gains worth $206 million per organization per year, and 20 percent total revenue growth over five years, through IT Transformation.All in all, the study uncovers the clear benefits of IT Transformation – at a scale that goes beyond the everyday – as Bank Leumi and RGP are finding out firsthand. IT Transformation accelerates the speed of many legacy IT operations from weeks to days to hours to minutes.The IT gatewayAt the end of the day, the goal is to advance business competitiveness. Strengthened by the connective tissue of people, process, and technology, IT Transformation is critical to maintaining market relevancy in an increasingly disrupted marketplace.The Maturity study also shows that a transforming business is 2.5x more likely to compete in the market over the next few years.  Where is your business today? Where do you sit on the transformational curve?Take advantage of our complimentary online IT Transformation self-assessment, to benchmark your efforts thus far, and understand your strengths and weaknesses compared to your peers.last_img read more

HUD’s Carson, Chairman Hensarling set to speak at NAFCU Caucus

first_img 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, will speak to credit union attendees at NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus, Sept. 10-13 in Washington.Carson became the 17th HUD Secretary earlier this year after a 30-year career as the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. NAFCU and its members work closely with HUD to ensure that credit unions can provide high-quality loan services to American families in order to strengthen our country’s economic foundation.Hensarling has been the lead on House efforts to revise numerous Dodd-Frank Act provisions, and his bill containing these changes – the Financial CHOICE Act (H.R. 10) – passed the House in June. The bill contains many NAFCU-supported measures that would, among other things, ease some mortgage rules, require a review of appropriate risk capital levels and rein in the CFPB’s authorities.Congressional Caucus is NAFCU’s credit union lobbying event of the year. Speakers will address the most important legislative and regulatory issues facing the credit union industry today.last_img read more

Returning from learning . . . now what?

first_imgYou’ve just returned to your office from a learning experience, full of excitement for what is to come. Your notebook is filled with pages of notes, take-aways and ideas you’d like to put into action. But when you open your email, you find yourself torn between moving back into your daily routine and pushing forward based on all of your new knowledge and experiences. How do you balance these two paths?My recent experience attending CEO Institute I: Strategic Planning at The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, was just as described above. Every day of the event, I returned to my room filled with new knowledge, ideas and contacts that I was so excited to bring back to my work/office.When I got back to CUES in Madison, I couldn’t express how impactful the week had been for me and all that I had experienced. I put my materials on my desk and for a couple of days they inched farther and farther from my line of sight. On my third day back, I realized I was going to have to take action to truly apply my experience at CEO Institute to my work. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
