Extra Credit Opportunity: City Tech Science Fiction Symposium

City Tech is holding its 3rd Annual Symposium on Science Fiction on interdisciplinary, STEM, science fiction, and Frankenstein. This event is free and happening all-day (9:00am-6:00pm) on campus: all of the day’s events take place in the new Academic Complex (A105) except for the final tour of the City Tech Science Fiction Archives (this is the collection we visited twice this semester).

We’ll be holding our class that day at the Symposium, which will overlap with the Student Roundtable on Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower. Everyone is required to come and take notes, as this is our regular class. Show up on time for class, in A105, at plan to stay until the roundtable is over. You should take notes during session, for discussion in class on Thursday, 11/29.

However, I also encourage you to attend other parts of the Symposium, if possible, and to share what you’ve learned with the class. If you attend a portion (or all!) of the Symposium on Tu 11/27 (other than our required class session) & blog in response by Su 12/2 you will get extra credit (yay!).

This extra credit will replace a missing blog if you missed some blogs, or it will count as extra credit if already you did all of your blogs (bonus points). Please note that, as always, there are only two grades for this extra credit blog: 100 and 0. If you attend the event and blog your responses/reflections thoughtfully and comprehensively, you will receive 100% (otherwise,  you will receive no credit). Don’t forget to take notes at the event, so you can include concrete details in your blog.

Please categorize your blog as “City Tech Science Fiction Symposium.”
