Governments invest in higher education hoping to see short-term economic benefits in the form of job creation, knowledge mobilization, and increasingly, the launch of entrepreneurial new start-up businesses. In this week’s episode, Ken Steele provides a quick overview of college and university research commercialization, from the first research parks to the latest business incubators and accelerators. In many ways, academic culture is antithetical to entrepreneurship. Scholars and scientists are often perfectionists, conducting exhaustive research, consulting their peers for input and consensus, and avoiding career-limiting risks. Academic culture is centred around credibility, caution, and certainty. Successful entrepreneurs, on the other hand, are often shameless self-promoters, confid...

Boston Globe columnist Alex Beam called it "a building with soul." Indeed, MIT's legendary Building 20 boasts its history and ghosts. Back in 1943, the building was a "temporary" structure built in haste during World War II. It might have taken an afternoon to design this "Plywood Palace," but Building 20 remained standing until 1998. During that time, many of MIT's greatest projects including radar research which helped win the war and the Institute's first interdisciplinary labs started in Building 20. Given its world famous academic occupants and the hotbed of ingenuity, the building became known as the Magical Incubator. This video—which was produced to mark its March 1998 commemoration before Building 20 was razed to make way for the Ray and Maria Stata Center—documents the building's...

4th and 5th graders working on Cryptography basics in the SI (Coding Lab): Students are attempting to decode a message that has been encoded using a simple Caesar cipher. However, the "shift" is unknown, and they must use human knowledge of the English language to intelligently guess at the shift prior to applying a decoding algorithm. In the fall, our students will be diving deeper into cybersecurity and white hat (ethical) hacking.
