The Lighter Side of Science and Engineering
Come see Georgia Tech’s Dr. Pete Ludovice—chemical and biomolecular engineering professor by day, comedian by night—explore the humorous side of science and engineering in four unique presentations.
Night of Comedy – Welcome to the Hilarious Side of Science!
Friday, April 27, 2012 | 7:30 p.m. at Georgetown University
3700 O St., N.W.
Washington D.C. 20057
Join Dr. Pete and several other scientists and engineers as they each bring their unique style of humor to explore the hilarious side of science in the Festival Expo’s “Night of Comedy.”
The Attack of the Monster Molecules
Saturday, April 28, 2012 | 3:00 p.m. Carver Stage
Explore the fascinating world of polymer science with Georgia Tech’s only comedian/chemical and biomolecular engineer. Using demonstrations and the same hilarity he uses in his comedy routine, Dr. Pete shows the important role these monster molecules play in everything from household products and aerospace to medicine and food.
Statistics: Feel the Power of the Dork Side
Saturday, April 28, 2012 | 5:00 p.m. Franklin Stage
Statistics, the most useful field of applied math since card counting, is critical to understanding our high-tech world, but most people prefer a root canal to learning statistics. Georgia Tech’s Dr. Pete performs part of his one-man show from the New Orleans Fringe Festival to illustrate basic statistics and their importance in our data-driven world.
Chemical Engineering – More Than Just Gas
Sunday, April 29, 2012 | Noon, Franklin Stage
Chemical engineering is usually associated with gasoline and petrochemicals, but engineers in this poorly understood discipline work in fields from materials and microelectronics to food and medicine. In this presentation, Georgia Tech’s Dr. Pete uses humor to illustrate what chemical engineers do to help improve your life every day.
