USF St. Petersburg LEED Building / Sci-Fi Symposium

USF St. Petersburg LEED Building

USF St. Petersburg is home to the University of South Florida’s first Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED) certified structure with its new Science and Technology building. This week’s University Beat on WUSF-TV takes you inside the building and tells you how this environmentally friendly direction may be the future for USF.

Sci-Fi Symposium

Coming up February 17th, USF’s Humanities Institute is holding a symposium featuring a trio of award-winning science fiction writers who also happen to be working scientists. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM talks to keynote speaker, author Gregory Benford, a physics professor who’s helping put the “sci” in “sci-fi.”
