Popular mechanics gives academy a national spotlight

Popular Mechanics magazine, the stalwart engineering and science magazine published since 1902, gave our Academy of Integrated Science a spotlight in its November 2017 issue, in a feature titled “Today’s Best Colleges for Tomorrow’s World.” Under the banner, “The Future of Science Classrooms,” the Academy was celebrated for “providing hands-on classes drawing from multiple departments to develop collaborative and critical-thinking skills with research experience. If technology employers could create the perfect college graduate in a lab, this is the skill set they would choose.” The Computational Modeling and Data Analytics (CMDA) program, with its blend of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, was singled out. Dean Sally C. Morton, at her Oct. 27 State of the College address, held the magazine up, declared, “Popular Mechanics is my new favorite magazine!”
