Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

Event Image Python: You should be using it (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

There are n number of programming languages out there. Heck, there are even n number of scripting languages out there. Then the question is why python? To be precise, Python is a scripting and not programming language. There is a thin line between being a programming language and a scripting language. Some of the scripting languages I can remember as of now would be JavaScript, Python, Perl, Ruby, VB script and PHP. These are the ones that are on the top. But again, why python? So, today I would be focusing why I always prefer to choose python over any other scripting language. So, here goes everything… Starting with Perl, both are pure scripting languages. But the intention behind using either are totally different.For more information related to this Training Course you can visit to our website:- eduCBA
Event Image CUYA - 6th Annual Poker Run Pub Crawl
4:00 PM - 10:00 PM

The Poker Run Pub Crawl is CUYA's flagship event. One Saturday afternoon each summer we take over the bars of Lodo for a pub crawl of epic proportions! The date for the 6th Annual Poker Run Pub Crawl is Saturday, August 1st! Get your friends together and get signed up for the best afternoon event of the summer! If you haven't been before, below are the links to get you up to speed. We hope to see you out for our biggest & best event of the year!

What is a Poker Run?

Simply, a poker run is a pub crawl, but a pub crawl of grand proportions. The pub crawl begins at The Celtic & Delany's for check-in and registration; this is where you will receive your first card. From there, six more bars are eligible stops during the Poker Run Pub Crawl. For each bar that you visit, you will get dealt one card towards a hand of poker. The more Bars you make it to, the higher chance that you'll have a better hand. You'll need to make it back to Blake Street Tavern for the Final Table by 8pm.

Once you get to Blake St. Tavern, and everyone has been dealt their hand, the top 10 hands will get a seat at our Final Table. The Final Table will consist of 10 hands of face-up 5 card stud (you do not need any poker skills to win at the Final Table, it is purely luck). At the end of each hand, the lowest 5 card hand will leave the Final Table and be sent away with prize. What are the prizes going to be? Check out what we had last year!

When?

Saturday, August 1st. The Poker Run will begin at 4:00pm at The Celtic & Delany's.
The Blake St. Tavern Final Table party will likely start at 7:00pm and you must be in line to turn in your hand by 8:00pm. Final Table & After Party will go until 10:00pm

Where?

Celtic, Blake Street Tavern, Hayter's, Brothers & more coming soon!

Event Image Wittenberg
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

“Hilarity, thy name is Wittenberg.” — The New York Times
Directed by Timothy Orr

To believe or not to believe? That is the question when Prince Hamlet, a dazed-and-confused senior at Wittenberg University, circa 1517, is caught in the crossfire between two giants of philosophy — and ego — the freethinking skeptic Dr. Faustus and stuffy, guilt-ridden Martin Luther. Punny, funny, brainy and zany, David Davalos’ ingenious mashup is equal parts Tom Stoppard, campus caper and metaphysical mind-trip. Colorado premier.
Event Image Othello
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

So will I turn her virtue into pitch and out of her own goodness make the net that shall enmesh them all.
Directed by Lisa Wolpe

In a country at war, Othello the Moor commands with authority and nobility of spirit, drawing strength from his bold and beautiful wife, Desdemona. But he has placed his trust in one of Shakespeare’s most sinister villains, Iago, who would sow seeds of doubt and destruction in the garden of their love. Passion, jealousy and murder explode in a sexy theatrical thriller that tumbles toward a diabolical finale in CSF’s first outdoor production of this great tragedy since 1996.

Event Image Henry V
2:30 PM - 5:00 PM

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
Directed by Carolyn Howarth

England’s crown rests on the head of the once wild and undisciplined acolyte of Falstaff, Prince Hal, now a wise and noble monarch leading his country into war with France. Rousing and cinematic in scope, Henry V raises compelling questions about leadership in a troubled world that powerfully echoes our own. With this production, CSF completes the four-play Henriad history cycle begun in 2013.

Original Practices Performance

“The audience rose in a thunderous ovation, proving the experiment with original practices (a) success.”  - Joseph F. Stephenson, Abilene Christian University, on 2014’s Henry IV, Part 2

Back by popular demand, CSF presents two exclusive, “original practices” performances of Henry VI, Part 1, the rarely produced saga of Henry V’s son. Last seen onstage at CSF in 1967, the play features one of Shakespeare’s most intriguing females, Joan of Arc. Both 2014 “OP” shows sold out, so buy your tickets early!

We encourage all HCM Community members to attend this session to understand how integral non-person profiles are to job descriptions, job qualifications and competencies—all of which will eventually feed into CU Careers (currently Jobs at CU) and ePerformance, the university's soon-to-be-launched performance management system.​

Event Image Much Ado About Nothing
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me.
Directed by Jim Helsinger

Romantic, raucous and razor-sharp, the Hamlet of Shakespeare comedies strikes hilarious chords even as it reveals timeless truths about love, change and acceptance. The men have returned victorious from war, but the merry sparring — and sparks — between Benedick the stubborn bachelor and witty, self-assured Beatrice have just begun.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

There are n number of programming languages out there. Heck, there are even n number of scripting languages out there. Then the question is why python? To be precise, Python is a scripting and not programming language. There is a thin line between being a programming language and a scripting language. Some of the scripting languages I can remember as of now would be JavaScript, Python, Perl, Ruby, VB script and PHP. These are the ones that are on the top. But again, why python? So, today I would be focusing why I always prefer to choose python over any other scripting language. So, here goes everything… Starting with Perl, both are pure scripting languages. But the intention behind using either are totally different.For more information related to this Training Course you can visit to our website:- eduCBA

England’s crown rests on the head of the once wild and undisciplined acolyte of Falstaff, Prince Hal, now a wise and noble monarch leading his country into war with France.

Event Image Wittenberg
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

“Hilarity, thy name is Wittenberg.” — The New York Times
Directed by Timothy Orr

To believe or not to believe? That is the question when Prince Hamlet, a dazed-and-confused senior at Wittenberg University, circa 1517, is caught in the crossfire between two giants of philosophy — and ego — the freethinking skeptic Dr. Faustus and stuffy, guilt-ridden Martin Luther. Punny, funny, brainy and zany, David Davalos’ ingenious mashup is equal parts Tom Stoppard, campus caper and metaphysical mind-trip. Colorado premier.
Event Image Othello
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

So will I turn her virtue into pitch and out of her own goodness make the net that shall enmesh them all.
Directed by Lisa Wolpe

In a country at war, Othello the Moor commands with authority and nobility of spirit, drawing strength from his bold and beautiful wife, Desdemona. But he has placed his trust in one of Shakespeare’s most sinister villains, Iago, who would sow seeds of doubt and destruction in the garden of their love. Passion, jealousy and murder explode in a sexy theatrical thriller that tumbles toward a diabolical finale in CSF’s first outdoor production of this great tragedy since 1996.

To be precise, Python is a scripting and not programming language. There is a thin line between being a programming language and a scripting language. Some of the scripting languages I can remember as of now would be JavaScript, Python, Perl, Ruby, VB script and PHP. These are the ones that are on the top. But again, why python? So, today I would be focusing why I always prefer to choose python over any other scripting language. So, here goes everything… Starting with Perl, both are pure scripting languages. But the intention behind using either are totally different.For more information related to this Training Course you can visit to our website:- eduCBA
Event Image Wittenberg
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

“Hilarity, thy name is Wittenberg.” — The New York Times
Directed by Timothy Orr

To believe or not to believe? That is the question when Prince Hamlet, a dazed-and-confused senior at Wittenberg University, circa 1517, is caught in the crossfire between two giants of philosophy — and ego — the freethinking skeptic Dr. Faustus and stuffy, guilt-ridden Martin Luther. Punny, funny, brainy and zany, David Davalos’ ingenious mashup is equal parts Tom Stoppard, campus caper and metaphysical mind-trip. Colorado premier.
Event Image Othello
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

So will I turn her virtue into pitch and out of her own goodness make the net that shall enmesh them all.
Directed by Lisa Wolpe

In a country at war, Othello the Moor commands with authority and nobility of spirit, drawing strength from his bold and beautiful wife, Desdemona. But he has placed his trust in one of Shakespeare’s most sinister villains, Iago, who would sow seeds of doubt and destruction in the garden of their love. Passion, jealousy and murder explode in a sexy theatrical thriller that tumbles toward a diabolical finale in CSF’s first outdoor production of this great tragedy since 1996.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

Event Image Henry V
1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
Directed by Carolyn Howarth

England’s crown rests on the head of the once wild and undisciplined acolyte of Falstaff, Prince Hal, now a wise and noble monarch leading his country into war with France. Rousing and cinematic in scope, Henry V raises compelling questions about leadership in a troubled world that powerfully echoes our own. With this production, CSF completes the four-play Henriad history cycle begun in 2013.
Event Image Much Ado About Nothing
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me.
Directed by Jim Helsinger

Romantic, raucous and razor-sharp, the Hamlet of Shakespeare comedies strikes hilarious chords even as it reveals timeless truths about love, change and acceptance. The men have returned victorious from war, but the merry sparring — and sparks — between Benedick the stubborn bachelor and witty, self-assured Beatrice have just begun.

Event Image Learning Goals and Formative Assessment
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Facilitated by Stephanie Chasteen, Associate Director, Science Education Initiative.

Students don’t always learn what it is that we intend to teach them. These learning goals have been valuable as a communication tool among faculty and between faculty and students so that everybody knows what the outcomes of the course are meant to be. Once these goals are written, it’s also much easier to write exams and other assessments. But writing clear learning goals takes some practice. In this interactive workshop, you’ll get that practice – in defining goals and designing assessments that address those goals. You will work in groups with faculty from similar disciplines to generate and analyze goals and questions, and will discuss how to put ongoing assessment of your students into practice. You are encouraged to work on a class you are currently teaching, so you can apply the techniques immediately. This workshop is particularly effective if you can attend with a fellow instructor in your discipline, and we encourage you to register with a partner.

Event Image EXHIBIT: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

Event Image Python: You should be using it (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

There are n number of programming languages out there. Heck, there are even n number of scripting languages out there. Then the question is why python? To be precise, Python is a scripting and not programming language. There is a thin line between being a programming language and a scripting language. Some of the scripting languages I can remember as of now would be JavaScript, Python, Perl, Ruby, VB script and PHP. These are the ones that are on the top. But again, why python? So, today I would be focusing why I always prefer to choose python over any other scripting language. So, here goes everything… Starting with Perl, both are pure scripting languages. But the intention behind using either are totally different.For more information related to this Training Course you can visit to our website:- eduCBA

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Python: You should be using it (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

There are n number of programming languages out there. Heck, there are even n number of scripting languages out there. Then the question is why python? To be precise, Python is a scripting and not programming language. There is a thin line between being a programming language and a scripting language. Some of the scripting languages I can remember as of now would be JavaScript, Python, Perl, Ruby, VB script and PHP. These are the ones that are on the top. But again, why python? So, today I would be focusing why I always prefer to choose python over any other scripting language. So, here goes everything… Starting with Perl, both are pure scripting languages. But the intention behind using either are totally different.For more information related to this Training Course you can visit to our website:- eduCBA

This session is about helping you bring that mindset to your lesson design and giving you strategies for making the most of that mindset.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

Contentious topics are often some of the most important and rewarding elements of our courses.

This session is about trying to increase the probability of success in teaching these topics and so, hopefully, reducing your anxiety in teaching them. We will discuss (1) how to set up your classroom culture long before you introduce the topic so as to increase the likelihood of success; (2) strategies for the day(s) on which you teach the contentious material; and (3) suggestions for how to respond to what may arise afterwards.

Event Image Fall Intensive 2015: Why It's a Good Thing to Have a Problem in Your Classroom
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

The Scholarship of Teaching & Learning or Why It's a Good Thing to Have a Problem in Your Classroom
Stephen Pollock, Professor, Physics 

We all (presumably) engage in "scholarly teaching", which carries implications of caring and self-reflection. But a "Scholarship of Teaching and Learning" (SOTL) suggests going further - building on an educational research base, collecting data in your classes, tackling "problems" in your classrooms with intellectual tools and practices drawn from your disciplinary research. It implies learning about how people learn, sharing your discoveries, and opening teaching and learning environments to constructive critique and development. In this interactive workshop, we will introduce some broad ideas about SOTL, and discuss ideas and data from the physics education research base, including things like peer instruction and "Concept Tests" in lectures, web-based feedback techniques,  and small-group "tutorials" in recitations as means to actively engage students.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Python: You should be using it (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

There are n number of programming languages out there. Heck, there are even n number of scripting languages out there. Then the question is why python? To be precise, Python is a scripting and not programming language. There is a thin line between being a programming language and a scripting language. Some of the scripting languages I can remember as of now would be JavaScript, Python, Perl, Ruby, VB script and PHP. These are the ones that are on the top. But again, why python? So, today I would be focusing why I always prefer to choose python over any other scripting language. So, here goes everything… Starting with Perl, both are pure scripting languages. But the intention behind using either are totally different.For more information related to this Training Course you can visit to our website:- eduCBA

Event Image Python: You should be using it (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

There are n number of programming languages out there. Heck, there are even n number of scripting languages out there. Then the question is why python? To be precise, Python is a scripting and not programming language. There is a thin line between being a programming language and a scripting language. Some of the scripting languages I can remember as of now would be JavaScript, Python, Perl, Ruby, VB script and PHP. These are the ones that are on the top. But again, why python? So, today I would be focusing why I always prefer to choose python over any other scripting language. So, here goes everything… Starting with Perl, both are pure scripting languages. But the intention behind using either are totally different.For more information related to this Training Course you can visit to our website:- eduCBA

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

Event Image Python: You should be using it (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

There are n number of programming languages out there. Heck, there are even n number of scripting languages out there. Then the question is why python? To be precise, Python is a scripting and not programming language. There is a thin line between being a programming language and a scripting language. Some of the scripting languages I can remember as of now would be JavaScript, Python, Perl, Ruby, VB script and PHP. These are the ones that are on the top. But again, why python? So, today I would be focusing why I always prefer to choose python over any other scripting language. So, here goes everything… Starting with Perl, both are pure scripting languages. But the intention behind using either are totally different.For more information related to this Training Course you can visit to our website:- eduCBA

Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

Event Image Python: You should be using it (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

There are n number of programming languages out there. Heck, there are even n number of scripting languages out there. Then the question is why python? To be precise, Python is a scripting and not programming language. There is a thin line between being a programming language and a scripting language. Some of the scripting languages I can remember as of now would be JavaScript, Python, Perl, Ruby, VB script and PHP. These are the ones that are on the top. But again, why python? So, today I would be focusing why I always prefer to choose python over any other scripting language. So, here goes everything… Starting with Perl, both are pure scripting languages. But the intention behind using either are totally different.For more information related to this Training Course you can visit to our website:- eduCBA

Title: Demand and Supply of innovation in the context of Canadian Small Drinking Water System

Madjid Mohseni, Ph.D.

Professor and Scientific Director

RES’EAU-WaterNET Small Water System Network

University of British Columbia

Vancouver, Canada

Abstract

Ensuring safe drinking water in small, rural and indigenous communities has long been recognized as a priority for many researchers, NGOs, and government organizations.  However, many conventional strategies and programs have not produced sustainable results and there are increasing numbers of communities facing challenging water issues.  Among the challenges that set small systems apart from larger urban centers include their chronic lack of financial resources for infrastructure investment, as well as limited access to skilled workers and adequate technical information and suitable technologies. Complicating the issue is the fact that source waters for many small communities exhibit high seasonal and geographic variability, meaning that multiple solutions may be required to achieve proper disinfection – exacerbating the funding and technology gaps with which these communities must cope.

This talk focuses on highlighting some of the challenges facing Canadian small and indigenous communities, and provides an analysis on some of the relevant innovations and initiatives towards a better solution in this area.  In particular, there will be a discussion on the approach and strategies adopted by RES’EAU-WaterNET strategic network, which takes the research program out of the lab and into the real world, incorporating stakeholders’ insight and priorities at the early stages of problem solving process.  

 

Madjid Mohseni is a Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. His research focuses on drinking water quality and treatment with particular emphasis on advanced chemical free processes, including UV-based oxidation, ion exchange, and electrochemical processes. He is the (co)author of over 100 refereed publications and a number of industrial reports and book chapters. Dr. Mohseni is currently the Scientific Director of RES’EAU-WaterNET, a multi-disciplinary strategic network funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada and partners from industry, communities, and government agencies, focusing on the development of affordable solutions to drinking water challenges of small and rural, and indigenous communities.

This talk is Co-sponsored by the DeRISK Center and Mortenson Center in Engineering for Developing Communities
