    Hello Trojans!

    Are you looking for assistance on returning to campus, improving their time management skills, and alleviating stress? Please come to our workshops and Drop-in hours hosted by the USC Kortschak Center for Learning and Creativity. No reservation or appointment is required for our workshops and drop-ins.

    KCLC will be hosting Drop-in Hours and Skill Building for Success Workshops on Zoom with a weekly theme of time management, reading strategies, stress management or test-taking. The workshops will be interactive with great tips and resources.

    This week, KCLC will be focusing on Time Management Techniques, discussing methods of improving your scheduling, prioritization, assignment completion, concentration, productivity, and goal-setting.

    Drop-in hours are available for undergraduate or graduate students to meet with an academic coach without needing to make a reservation. These sessions may be held in a group setting, dependent upon staffing availability and demand.

    If you are interested in learning more about weekly academic coaching, email us at kortschakcenter@usc.edu for additional information.

    KCLC will have more events throughout the semester, and you can check out the most up to date workshop and drop-in schedule on their website https://kortschakcenter.usc.edu/events/

  • EnCorps STEM Teachers Program

    Tue, Oct 05, 2021 @ 12:30 PM - 01:30 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Career Connections

    Workshops & Infosessions


    Join the EnCorps STEM Teachers Program for a virtual Trojan Talk about pathways into teaching middle and high school, as well as other ways to be involved in ensuring all students receive an equitable education in California.

    RSVP here: https://usc.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJAude6vpjMrHNED43IREuBNG00wPVhcPMzf

    The EnCorps Trojan talk is open to all graduate level students with 1 year of science, tech, engineering, math or research professional experience. The Fellowship is an unpaid opportunity, and within 9 months-2 years you can be hired as a credentialed teacher.
    EnCorps is unable to offer Visa sponsorship.
    The EnCorps STEM Teachers Program empowers STEM industry experts to transform public education by exploring teaching in high needs schools. The STEM Teaching Fellowship allows STEM professionals to explore teaching middle or high school in a low risk, highly supported way. Fellows will see teaching first-hand as a volunteer guest teacher before pursuing a teaching credential/license/certification and getting hired as a teacher. Along the way, Fellows are supported with training, coaching and a cohort of peers.

    In this webinar we will discuss:
    - The STEM achievement, access and literacy gaps in high needs schools.
    - How you can directly impact the next generation of innovators, scientists and engineers, and are uniquely positioned to transform public STEM education.
    - EnCorps' Fellowship details - our cohort-based program model and timelines.
    - EnCorps' current locations: San Diego, Los Angeles, SF Bay Area, Denver and New York City.
    - EnCorps application process and selection criteria.
    - Next steps for interested candidates.
    Do your part to ensure all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, have a strong STEM foundation to help them navigate an increasingly complex world.

  • CS Distinguished Lecture: Tomas Lozano-Perez (MIT) - Generalization in Planning and Learning for Robotic Manipulation

    Tue, Oct 05, 2021 @ 03:30 PM - 04:50 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Tomas Lozano-Perez, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

    Talk Title: Generalization in Planning and Learning for Robotic Manipulation

    Series: Computer Science Distinguished Lecture Series

    Abstract: An enduring goal of AI and robotics has been to build a robot capable of robustly performing a wide variety of tasks in a wide variety of environments; not by sequentially being programmed (or taught) to perform one task in one environment at a time, but rather by intelligently choosing appropriate actions for whatever task and environment it is facing. This goal remains a challenge. In this talk I'll describe recent work in our lab aimed at the goal of general-purpose robot manipulation by integrating task-and-motion planning with various forms of model learning. In particular, I'll describe approaches to manipulating objects without prior shape models, to acquiring composable sensorimotor skills, and to exploiting past experience for more efficient planning.

    Biography: Tomas Lozano-Perez is professor in EECS at MIT, and a member of CSAIL. He was a recipient of the 2011 IEEE Robotics
    Pioneer Award and a co-recipient of the 2021 IEEE Robotics and Automation Technical Field Award. He is a Fellow of the AAAI, ACM, and IEEE.

    TwilioQuest is a fun and engaging way for students to learn about Twilio. A TwilioQuest operation consists of:
    - 15-min kick-off session
    - 40-min where students play TwilioQuest
    - 5-min to announce winners of the Operation. The winners are randomly selected participants.

    In addition to giving students an opportunity to use Twilio's APIs through TwilioQuest, they can also join the TwilioQuest community on Discord and learn about our student ambassador program, Field Operators & our student club grant (www.twilio.com/quest/students) which they can participate in prior to becoming Twilions.
