May 28, 2013—The University of Denver's Morgridge College of Education along with the Morgridge Family Foundation is excited to announce that world renowned scientist, Dr. Jane Goodall, will be delivering the opening address at the fifth annual "Share Fair." Media interested in attending the event and interviewing Dr. Goodall please contact Theresa Mueller at 303-871-4778 or [email protected].

Share Fair was started five years ago by John and Carrie Morgridge as a free series of day long intensive teacher workshops. Share Fair is at capacity. Jane Goodall's address in the Magness arena is free and open to the public. To attend, please register here.

Immediately following Goodall's keynote speech, in the concourses of the Ritchie Center, the public can enjoy STEMosphere which is a free, fun and interactive show of informational exhibits and creative competitions that demonstrate the many ways that science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) come to life in the classroom.

Faculty, staff and students from the University's School of Engineering and Computer Science (SECS) will also participate in the STEMosphere expo. There will be displays and demonstrations of some of the research taking place in SECS, including, unmanned ground and aerial vehicles (UAV's), a robot that assists children with autism, as well as the KillaJoule, an electrical battery powered motorcycle that reached a maximum speed of 215 m.p.h., co-designed by graduate student Eva Hakansson.
