Across the United States, cities like Philadelphia are undertaking projects to make aging buildings and transportation systems more energy efficient, and to transform public services such as health care, education and social services, using new technologies to make them "smarter."

Philadelphia academic, government and industry leaders will come together to address how to prepare students for these opportunities, bringing out leadership, creativity, entrepreneurial thinking and – most importantly – the ability to apply technology as they enter the workforce.

With the pace of global information flow increasing, the time is now to provide students from all disciplines with the tools they need to thrive in this technology-rich, dynamically networked and globally-integrated world.

You are cordially invited to participate in a panel discussion during this session from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m at the National Constitution Center.
