Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination and the ASU-Leonardo Initiative have launched a new eight-week virtual fellowship program for fall 2020.
“Our center seeks to inspire collective imagination for better futures,” said Ed Finn, the founding director of ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination.
“These fellows are working on a fantastic set of projects to deepen our understanding of sustainability by bringing together art and science.
For the first time, through the Leonardo Imagination Fellowship Program, Kumar feels that her work can be designed at a macro level, helping her understand how technology may impact lives and whether technology and nature can coexist.
ASU’s Leonardo Imagination Fellowship is important to Thompson because she points out that women, and especially Native Americans, are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
