Monday the 23rd of October 2017
from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. The 5th Savannah Science Seminar
HOWsession (Hands On Workshop) will be focused on WEB tools
utilized to communicate information. Your instructors Huy
Ngo and Jim Goodlett
will be at the host site of SCAD's
Eichberg Hall here in Savannah Georgia (*see specific directions
Among a vast array of learning experiences you will be involved
with, the following is a brief outline of what you will do:
* ONline research.
* Team dynamics.
* WEBsite design.
* WEB communications.
Before this seminar, you must
do RESEARCH on the following 3
topics, and, you must SAVE THE WEBsite
ADDRESSES and bring them to this HOWsession:
1. General Info about Rocketry
2. Launching Rockets
3. Rocket Recovery
**You can use any search engine you want (Google,
etc) to find out information on the 4 topics, but as you learned
in the kickoff seminar, one of the most powerful search engines
out there is Copernic...you can go to the following site to
download this freeware application to use for information searches
(this is a PC only application!!!!):
(pick the ENGLISH language version (and download to your computer))
Huy S. Ngo
Mr. Huy S. Ngo (pronounced
We' No) is the former Chair of the Architecture Department and
a Professor of Architecture and Electronic Design at the Savannah
College of Art and Design. He received his undergraduate
Bachelor of Architecture degree at Texas Tech University in
1989 and Master of Architecture Degree at Texas
Tech University in 1992. Director Ngo has practiced architecture
in Texas and New Mexico, and has worked on variety of projects
that involve utilizing electronic design tools to analyze, synthesize,
and test energy efficiency design concepts. He has been teaching
Architecture and Computer Aided Design courses for the last
10 years. Just recently, Bentley Systems, Incorporated, makers
products, named SCAD Director Huy Ngo as Educator
of the Year. As well, this last year Director
Ngo was named the head of the Technology Committee for the ACSA.
Ngo was leading the Electronic Design Integration Program for
the nine departments within the School of Building Arts and
School of Design. These departments are: Architecture, Interior
Design, Historic Preservation, Product Design, Furniture Design,
Metal and Jewelry Design and Fashion and Fibers. His teaching
and research focuses on the application and integration of high
technology in the Design Profession. He has extensive knowledge
of Design, Design Process, Computing Technology, and Computer
Aided Design, which are currently being applied towards teaching
a variety of electronic design courses among all the aforementioned
departments. He is actively involved in the Online Learning
Program at the Savannah College of Art and Design and is assisting
in the implementation of such program, including offering various
Design Studio courses with supplemental information ONline to
Jim Goodlett is
the President of Morris Technology, a back-end systems automation
company that integrates high technology into the media space.
Mr. Goodlett received his Bachelor of Architecture degree at
Tech University in 1987 and Master of Architecture Degree
(emphasis in electronic design office management) at Texas Tech
University in 1990. Mr. Goodlett began his career in the building
and construction management profession, and applied his working
knowledge towards the earned degrees for the design of form
and space in relationship to the 4 building systems - Envelope,
Interior, Structural, and Mechanical Systems. In the midst of
his education, Mr. Goodlett began experimenting with a formalized
methodology of integrating electronic design tools into the
design process to communicate systems to the building team -
architects, engineers, interior designers, project managers,
contractors, planning commissions, zoning boards, and the client.
Aptly, his Master's Thesis was on the use of virtual systems
(VR) to manage the systemic flow of data, information, and knowledge
related to the design of architectural form.
Goodlett has taught electronic design process and tools to designers
at several Universities, while also running a digital imaging
company (3Dcom) which worked with design professionals in need
of communication media and formatted presentations for planning
boards, zoning commissions, historic review boards, TV commercials,
as well as imaging to aid the client's understanding of the
building form and typology. Before moving to Morris Technology,
Mr. Goodlett previously held positions as the Director of Emerging
technology for Verisign,
the Chief Information Architect at HOsystems, as well as VP
of ONline Learning at SCAD.
In his role at SCAD, he worked with the academic and administrative
departments to WEBcentrify the learning process, experience,
and knowledge transfer so that any student in any class would
be able to get supplemental information online any time of the
day from anywhere in the world. With Verisign
and HOsystem, Mr. Goodlett's charge was to work with the Wireless
division to integrate new technologies for clients in the telecommunications
space, as well as WEBcentrifying communication mediums - INTRAnets
and EXTRAnets - that are integral and vital components of the
way in which the business world operates.
Now with Morris Technology, Mr. Goodlett's role is to set the
strategic technological direction for a sister company (Morris
Multimedia, which has 98 media companies), lead a team that
integrates back office system technology, as well as advise
on investing in technology companies with the media space.
The following are directions for getting to the Seminar:
Once in Downtown.
1. Going west on Liberty Street in the downtown, you will hit
the intersection of MLK Blvd and Liberty...Directly to the northwest
corner of that intersection is the Savannah Visitors Center.
One building to the north of it is a red brick SCAD building
called Eichberg Hall.
2. Turn right onto MLK. In between the Visitors Center and Eichberg
Hall is a city parking lot that you can park in as seen in the
By the parking lot, walk up to the south side entrance to Eichberg
Hall, which is adjacent to the aforementioned parking lot...The
entrance is mid way down the one story sheds, facing the parking
lot...There will be a greeter there waiting for you, who will
direct you to one of several computer labs on the main floor.
* You will need to congregate
in the lobby as entrance to SCAD rooms require SCAD escorts.
Please arrive NLT 6:45pm and groups will be escorted accordingly.
This will allow the seminar to start on time at 7:00pm.
