  1. Why is it that when I “Google” Innovate@BU, I don’t get sent to any website that has a URL that is clearly related to the project. It seems like this is still very clearly in the planning stages.

  2. I would like to congratulate President Brown and all us with launching Innovate@BU – a huge step ahead in the University development, which makes it on par with MIT’s Media Lab, and Harvard’s i-Lab.
    We all know how profoundly big impact on a society can have an innovative device, design, or an application.
    But the most important and lasting effect comes from the growing number of innovators and inventors fostered and thriving in the nurturing and supportive environment.
    This initiative may have even broader impact if it spills out outside of Boston University. Our elementary, middle, and high schools also need to employ teaching strategies which encourage and cultivate innovativeness of students. Unfortunately, the study and development of such strategies is in the very basic stage (http://www.gomars.xyz/nsf.html). That is why for quite some time I have been trying to convince our administration and the board for establishing Boston University Institute for Learning and Teaching. An initial description of the mission of the Institute is available at https://teachologyforall.blogspot.com/2017/11/pilt.html.

  3. Very exciting, particularly those efforts that work on mending the fabric of our society (outreach to homeless, civic engagement enablement). It’s pleasing to see good news being shared.
