AZ Sci Tech Festival

I am hosting five panels today at the AZ Sci Tech Festival. You can still attend and register on site at the Mesa Art Center.

I am also hosting a lunch meet up at the festival for those who want to create more experiences out of their STEAM and Sci-Tech events. HERE

 

At Laboratory5 Inc. We bring together all elements of STEAM and tie them up into a package to promote the work each individual is doing in their fields to celebrate this work. We produce experiences so that those unfamiliar with the glorious, quirky, nerdy qualities of all areas of STEAM can be explored as an adventure to explain these fields.

Biomimicry Nebula in a Bottle

Join me TONIGHT!

Friday, June 2, 2017, from 6 to 8 pm at the Tempe Center for the Arts 

It’s FREE! And there is a wine bar. You can drink, in the gallery, while making stuff and talking science!

It’s a creative art and science mash-up. I will talk about how naturally flowing fluids, gases, and heat follow a common geometric pattern in nature. Natures movement is a logarithmic or exponentially growing spiral, as commonly seen in seashells for example. This pattern shows up everywhere in nature including in the pattern of swirling galaxies in outer space. This talk is combined with a hands-on workshop that is a fun opportunity to learn about biomimicry and play with both art and science. Each participant will create their own nebula in a bottle.

It’s a ladies night out – so grab your lady friends and let’s play with art and science!

Name the new blue

Since scientists discover a new blue (see article HERE) Crayola has jumped on the bandwagon and are inviting the public to name the new blue because the scientists chose YinMn (pronounced “yin-min”) and well it’s not so catchy!

ignorance of science

” . . .  we live in a world where ignorance of science and its methods is the surest, shortest road to national disaster. During the past half century every other nation has made great efforts to impart more knowledge to more young people. In the United States, professional educationists have chosen the opposite course.”

– from “Knowledge and Understanding” in Collected Essays (1958)
