4 PRESENTATIONS!!! ARE YOU NERD ENOUGH TO HANDLE IT?
Robbie Henderson is a PhD candidate that the University of Waterloo Astronomy department and he is the coordinator of the Gustav Bakos Observatory. Robbie will be telling us about the biggest astronomical event of our lifetime: the Venus Transit happening on June 5th along with details of the lecture and event happening at the University of Waterloo from 5pm until sundown (yes Nerd Nite will be there to represent!). We will have solar viewers available for purchase by our Nerd Nite audience. Use responsibly people! Remember, the sun seeks to destroy us all! 🙂
Dr. Shohini Ghose, Director of the Women in Science Centre at Wilfrid Laurier University and world renown physicist will be doing a mind blowing presentation on QUANTUM CHAOS!!! (insert echo)
Based on a true story, for the first time ever on screen, watch the chaotic dance of cold atoms!
This movie is rated R for explicit quantum content. No atoms were harmed during the making of this film….wait, actually they were.
A Shohini Ghose production: physicist and self-proclaimed nerd (but after this presentation, she will be an internationally proclaimed nerd overlord!)
Alex Bencz is a Mechatronics Engineer but when Alex isn’t making robots do his bidding, he is an avid nature enthusiast and will be enlightening us about the fascinating life of SNAILS. Yes, if you thought you knew everything about these creatures, think again. Not only are they adorable, they are much more interesting than you think. Warning: this presentation may contain snail pornographic images. Any snails in attendance must be +18 years old and show id.
There is much more to Batman than most people know…and Jenn Emes will be here to educate us about the Dark Knight with some cool and interesting facts only the hard care Batfans know.
Jenn has a Degree in Philosophy and Classical Civilizations – specializing in argumentation and critical thinking and is a sci-fi and gamer geek but most importantly, she celebrates her lifelong obsession with Batman every day, as everyone should.
The latest Nerd Nite magazine will be available as well as Nerd Nite KW June calendars showing nerd events for the next month in Kitchener and Waterloo.
