Upcoming Schilling Lectures

The Harold K. Schilling Memorial Lecture on Science, Technology, and Society focuses on the connection among ethics, science, technology, and the human condition, and honors the memory of Dr. Schilling, physicist, professor, and former dean of the Graduate School at Penn State.  Dr. Schilling was also president of the American Association of Physics Teachers (1948–49).  His physics research included work on supersonic signaling for the Office of Scientific Research and Development during World War II, and in his later years, he turned to the connection between science and religion.
