SMITHFIELD, R.I. - Kathryn D. Sullivan, the first American woman to walk in space, will discuss earth observation and prediction and her experiences as a scientist, astronaut and explorer at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, in Bryant University's Janikies Theater, 1150 Douglas Pike.
Dr. Sullivan's presentation, which is free and open to the public, is part of Bryant University's second annual Research and Engagement Day, known as REDay. Classes are canceled through 5 p.m. so that faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as industry and community partners associated with Bryant can participate in a daylong showcase of research, creativity and innovative academic accomplishments.
Sullivan says she is drawn to outer space and under sea, "realms where, by rights, us soft-bodied critters have no business being." She also is fascinated by the technology that enables humans to be at home in each of these worlds. "I marvel at the ability of clever, creative, curious people to muster technology to let us take ourselves and our intellects to exotic and crazy places," she told an audience in 2008.

SMITHFIELD, R.I. - Peering at millennia-old cells through a powerful microscope; plugging volumes of data into prototype statistical models; teasing out the critical components of a business case study - all in a day's work for Bryant faculty and students.
But such research often occurs in the margins of the day, in solitude or among small teams. Outcomes of the work often are reserved for an audience of journal readers.
Bryant's inaugural Research and Engagement Day (REDay) set out to change that. On April 20, the University suspended classes and extracurricular activities through 5 p.m. in order to showcase the many ways the Bryant community generates new knowledge.
