STEM Lecture Series: Tales of Earth’s Past – A Geologic Perspective on Climate Change

Wednesday, April 11, 2018
7:30–9 p.m.
San Diego Mesa College
MS Building

Join professor emeritus and media personality Dr. Pat Abbott as he discusses Earth’s climate history from a geologic point of view. Throughout its 4.5-billion year history, Earth’s climates have changed profoundly. What lessons can these former climate shifts teach us about Earth’s future?

Lectures are held in the Mathematics and Natural Sciences (MS) building, which is located in the west-central portion of the Mesa College campus. View a campus map here.

As parking can often be a challenge, we urge you to consider taking using Uber or Lyft. Please note that non-students may park in any parking lot except for lots 7–10, provided that the spot isn’t designated as faculty/staff. There is a cash-only parking machine in each lot. While the fee to park is $5 per day, there is no cost to attend the lecture.

Playing with Art and Science: Origami, Glass and Mathematics

Playing with Art and Science: Origami, Glass and Mathematics

Monday, April 16, 2018
6–7 p.m.
University of San Diego
Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice Theatre

Join father/son duo and MIT professors Martin and Erik Demaine for a lecture about blurring the lines between art and mathematics. Paper folding is a great setting for this approach, as it mixes a rich geometric structure with a beautiful art form. Mathematically, they are continually developing algorithms to fold paper into any desired shape. Sculpturally, the duo has been exploring curved creases, which remain poorly understood mathematically, but have potential applications in robotics, deployable structures, manufacturing, and self-assembly. By integrating science and art, they constantly find new inspirations, problems and ideas: proving that sculptures do or don’t exist, or illustrating mathematical beauty through physical beauty. Collaboration, particularly as a father/son team, has been a powerful way for them to bridge art and mathematics. Prior to the lecture, guests will be able to view a sneak peek of the exhibition in the Humanities Center Gallery starting at 4 p.m.

6–7 p.m.
