Saturday at the DEN Summer Institute got off to a great start with special speaker Danny Forster, host of Build It Bigger, on the Discovery Science Channel (http://science.discovery.com/tv/build-bigger/meet-danny/meet-danny.html). Having covered buildings in 50 countries in his five years as host, he had plenty of examples as he spoke about design and its relationship to culture, climate and history of a country. He also spoke about his latest project covering work at Ground Zero.
Sunday was about networking as the group visited Sea World, interacting with dolphins, sea lions, whales — oh, and each other, sharing ideas and resources. The evening brought information about the Pecha Kucha Challenge (20 slides, 20 seconds of narration each to tell about a concept) and team meetings.
Watch for more news and some great ideas from our Texas DENSI folks!
