in Shriver Hall
Physicist and science writer Neil A. Downie will perform experiments from his book, Ink Sandwiches, Electric Worms and 37 Other Experiments for Saturday Science, at noon on Wednesday, March 10, in Shriver Hall Auditorium on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
Published by The Johns Hopkins University Press, Ink Sandwiches, Electric Worms and 37 Other Experiments for Saturday Science provides a collection of offbeat science experiments that use high school-level mathematics to demonstrate basic physical principles. The experiments involve making a clock out of an ice cube, sending messages with bubbles and the chemistry of red-hot batteries and wet solar cells. Downie is a lead scientist with Air Products and Chemicals Inc., and is also the author of Vacuum Bazookas, Electric Rainbow Jelly and 27 Other Saturday Science Projects.
Copies of Ink Sandwiches, Electric Worms and 37 Other Experiments for Saturday Science will be available for sale and signing. This discussion is cosponsored by The Johns Hopkins University Press. A digital image of the book is available upon request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by The Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, now in its 38th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. Admission is free. For further information, call the Office of Special Events at 443-287-9900.
