Joan Horvath

Joan Horvath is a co-founder (with Rich Cameron) of Nonscriptum LLC (http://www.nonscriptum.com). Their Pasadena-based consulting and training firm was founded in early 2015 and focuses on teaching educators and scientists how to use maker tech. Joan is an MIT alumna, recovering rocket scientist and educator. Joan and Rich teach online classes through LERN network (linked on their site) and have collaborated on five books (so far!) for the Apress imprint of Springer-Nature, including the 2016 releases “3D Printed Science Projects” and “Practical Fashion Tech.” They have a particular interest in the application of maker technologies for scientific applications, and are helping organize their second annual Scientific Maker Exhibit at the American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS) Pacific Division conference in Waimea, Big Island of Hawaii, in June.

In addition to her work with Rich, Joan also has an appointment as Core Adjunct faculty for National University’s College of Letters and Sciences. She has taught at the university level in a variety of institutions, both in Southern California and online. Before she and Rich started Nonscriptum, she held a variety of entrepreneurial positions, including VP of Business Development at a Kickstarter-funded 3D-printer company. Joan started her career with 16 years at the NASA/Caltech Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where she worked in programs including the technology transfer office, the Magellan spacecraft to Venus, and the TOPEX/Poseidon oceanography spacecraft. She holds an undergraduate degree from MIT in Aeronautics and Astronautics and a master’s degree in Engineering from UCLA.

Guest: Joan Horvath. Joan Horvath returned to The Space Show to talk about her new book, "What Scientists Actually Do." You can learn more about, look at the table of contents, and even read an excerpt at the website, www.whatscientistsactuallydo.com. Joan explained why she wrote the book, the need for it, and what readers are the target audience. Our discussion soon turned to education with Ms Horvath providing a broad look at science and engineering education in our country, both with schoolchildren and adults.

Broadcast 611 (Special Edition)

Joan Horvath returned to The Space Show to discuss her new book, "Saturn: A New View." We started the discussion with a short review of the Personal Spaceflight Symposium and the X Prize Cup held last week in Las Cruces, NM. After returning from the first break, Joan talked with us about the book, the cooperation involved to put it together, the amazing photos used in it and the editing process to put the photos and book together. We then discussed the VSE, NASA, JPL, science funding and programming, science education in the United States and more.

Broadcast 426 (Special Edition)

Joan Horvath returned to The Space Show to discuss the state of space and science education in the United States. Current trends in science literacy impact aerospace in general and New Space in particular. In Kansas and in Pennsylvania, fights are ongoing in the courts to define whether theories with a basis in faith can be taught in a science classroom; polls show that less than half of adults understand the issues of scientific method at the root of the controversy.
