Big Orange Big IdeasFaculty, staff, students, and alumni are sharing the big ideas that make a difference in their world.

Harry “Hap” McSween, Chancellor’s Professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, has the big idea of engaging kids in science and engineering by letting them see first-hand that science is fun.


McSween will speak on “Exploring Asteroids with the Dawn Spacecraft” at the College of Arts and Sciences Pregame Showcase at 4:00 p.m. before the Tennessee-Florida game Saturday, September 15, in the Carolyn P. Brown University Center Ballroom.

Free and open to the public, each showcase features a thirty-minute presentation followed by a fifteen-minute question-and-answer session. Presentations begin two hours before kickoff. A brief reception will be held immediately following each program. Learn more about the Pregame Showcase series here.
