“On Friday December 12, the MIT Enterprise Forum presented “Women in Engineering: The Role of Educational Technology”, featuring Institute Professor Mildred Dresselhaus, Dr. Nish Sonwalkar and Johan Uvin, Assistant Secretary of Education. Panelists explored the role of women in science and engineering and how we can encourage more women to participate.”
“Last Friday afternoon the MITEF Cambridge hosted a discussion between MIT Institute Professor Dr. Mildred Dresselhaus and Assistant Secretary of Education, Dr. Johan E. Uvin, that was moderated by Dr. Nish Sonwalkar, Founder and CEO of intellADAPT and formerly the Director of the Hypermedia Teaching Facility and Principal Educational Architect at MIT. The subject?

We are pleased to announce that intellADAPT’s Founder and CEO, Dr. Nishikant Sonwalkar, will serve as the moderator for “Women in Science and Engineering: The Role of Education Technology in Globalization” hosted Friday, December 12th by the MIT Enterprise Forum in Cambridge.
This #GivingTuesday intellADAPT is proud to announce the launch of our #OpenSTEMOpenDoors initiative. Through crowd-sourced generosity we hope to raise 540k to empower 2 million STEM students annually.
We have made it our mission to provide open access to quality STEM Education. By providing free, fundamental digital STEM courses talented students can realize their dream job in a STEM field regardless of their schedule, geographical location, or socioeconomic status.
With the assistance of a National Science Foundation (NSF) SBIR grant, IntellADAPT.com (formerly Synaptic Global Learning ) has developed a groundbreaking adaptive massive open online course (aMOOC) aimed at “Mastering Fundamentals of Physics.” This course will provide 100,000 to 150,000 students a year the preparation they need to sit the Advanced Placement (AP) exams in Physics completely free. This is the first of 20 aMOOCs under development in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
