Professor Peter Mahaffy presented a talk at the inaugural E. A. Robinson Lecture on May 27, 2016. With opening remarks from Professors Claudiu Gradinaru and Judith Poë, approximately one hundred people were in attendance. The talk was attended by Dr. E. A. Robinson for whom the lecture series is named. Entitled " Guiding Human Development on a Changing Planet: A Role for Science Education?", the talk was well received for its exploration of new teaching models to enhance engagement and problem solving among first year chemistry students. The lively Q & A reflected the tremendous interest in the subject.
