2015 Physics & Engineering Festival
Saturday, March 28, 2015
10:00 am – 5:00 pm
It ain’t easy being green, but you’ll have two chances at *seeing* green Saturday, March 28, at Texas A&M’s Physics and Engineering Festival headlined by world-renowned physicist, best-selling author, and science communicator Brian Greene. Ride a square-wheeled bicycle, run through a pool of cornstarch, or shoot balloons with lasers -- three of roughly 100 interactive experiments that will be on display from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the George P. Mitchell '40 Physics Building on the Texas A&M University campus. No fees or tickets are required for the free event, which will feature three fantastic bubble shows at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., as well as opportunities to meet NASA astronaut Gregory Chamitoff and Nobel Prize winners Dudley Herschbach and David Lee. The day will conclude with a 4 p.m. public lecture by Greene, author of the "The Elegant Universe" and a guest-star on "The Big Bang Theory." Greene will also narrate a special evening production of “Icarus at the Edge of Time” performed by the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra.
