Jens Dalsgaard, a professor at Aalborg University, is a passionate researcher and teacher. He believes in learning not only through theory but also through playing and hands-on building as important building-blocks of education. This presentation is based on the experience of how he made a satellite for surveying ships at sea near Greenland with engineering students at Aalborg University.

The Engineering Leadership Council: Professionals Implementing Social Impact Together
BY PAMELA ROGALSKI
@ PECHAKUCHA URBAN INNOVATION MONTH
ON APR 01, 2014
As Pamela Rogalski makes quite clear, scaling the implementation of social impact in construction projects in urban environments is new. People want to “do the right thing”, but all industry professionals have encountered constraints that prevent us from doing what we know we ought to do (and we've all ranted about it over a beer at the end of the day). For engineers, however, the difference is that what we implement at scale has the potential to impact an entire community. To make the shift from intention to reality, whole engineering leaders are building momentum through vertical industry partnerships and triple bottom line business cases.

ON JUN 18, 2019
Eloise Maltby Maland initiates a discussion on our relationship to territory, belonging and otherness in her fascinating work. From the Lunar House to the Moon and back on Earth, she uses notions of space travel and satellite images to question the way we map, control and understand the space around us.
"Notions of space travel transport us away to look back and see the Earth from a new perspective. Looking up to the skies in order to return the gaze on ourselves, to understand and question the Earth, evoking ideas of territory and wonder."
