Celebration of Research in the Natural Sciences

Add to Calendar 10/11/2016 15:00:0010/11/2016 18:00:0015Celebration of Research in the Natural SciencesHave you ever pondered those deep scientific questions like, "How do they get Teflon to stick to non-stick pans?" or "Does my refrigerator light stay on when the door is closed?" or "If we can put a man on the moon why can't they make the escalator hand-rails move at the same speed as the steps?" For answers to these and many other questions, please come to the first "Celebration of Research in the Natural Sciences." The afternoon will start with presentations from faculty in the mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and bioengineering departments, followed by a student poster session. This is an excellent opportunity to see the fascinating research happening in the Science Center and get a chance to talk with the students and faculty doing this work. Food and drinks will be provided.
