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.

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.
