Spark, UCAR Science Education, hosted NCAR's third Ignite event on Thursday, February 7, 2013 from 3:30 - 5:00pm at the Mesa Lab Main Seminar Room. Eight presenters followed the Ignite format – 20 slides, 15 seconds each – for eight five-minute presentations to enlighten, inspire, or simply make us think a little differently.
Presentation topics focused on issues of relevance to UCAR, NCAR and UCP staff. Videos of the various presentations from Ignite III as well as prior Ignite NCAR events can be viewed on the Ignite presentation page.
Staff interested in experiencing an Ignite event are encouraged to attend and join in this fun. Also, email Spark if you'd like to be considered as a presenter for one of the two Ignite events held bi-annually, usually in February and September each year.
