Event Description

Live demonstrations with Sandy Frost and Linda Anderman.

The Internet of things
Sandy Frost is an electrical and computer engineer who works as a solutions architect, developer and certified security specialist at Los Alamos National Laboratory. She was inspired by her Grandfather’s “love of learning” and hopes to light the fire for others.

Join Sandy, with the Lab's Software and Applications Engineering Division, as she talks about how software is integral to our lives, including coding (plugged and unplugged), its history, and accessibility. She even has a home automation demonstration using Amazon Echo.

Measuring with Metric
Even though the United States signed the Treaty of the Meter in 1875, we continue to use two sets of measurement units side by side, leading to wasted time and medical errors—among other issues. Stop by and learn from Linda Anderman about the advantages of the metric system. There are scales both old and new to play with and an opportunity to consider if our current path really "measures up."
