At a recent meeting for the Space Coast Writer’s Guild, President Scott Tilley spoke about two things: STEM education anscott tilleyd FRINGE Science. As a writer, it was so interesting to consider the possibility that tomorrow’s sciences could be today’s science fiction.

STEM education is an integrated  approach to teaching and learning with a focus on the skills of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. As a professor in the Department of Education and Interdisciplinary Studies in the College of Science at Florida Institute of Technology, Scott will deliver a lecture questioning whether or not mankind’s ability and knowledge in engineering will ever bridge the gap between the true science of STEM and the science-fiction of FRINGE, which is the scientific study of subjects that go against mainstream or orthodox theories such as time-travel, invisibility, and artificial evolution.

Today’s lecture is from 8-9 p.m. at Olin Engineering Complex Auditorium (Room EC 118) on the Florida Tech campus, 150 W. University Blvd. in Melbourne, Florida. For more information, visit Florida Institute of Technology or Florida Today.
