Galaxy Art

Do-It-Yourself Galaxy Art is inspired by constellations, nebula, star clusters, asteroids and the incredible beauty of the cosmos. Layers of colors are sponged on a small, white canvas to create a sense of spatial vastness to convey the light within the immensity of space.

STEM LECTURE SERIES: UTILITY AND TRUTH IN MODEL DESIGN

STEM LECTURE SERIES: UTILITY AND TRUTH IN MODEL DESIGN

Thursday, May 10, 2018
7:30–9 p.m.
San Diego Mesa College
MS Building

Join Mesa College physics professor Claude Mona for a fascinating look at how scientists interpret evidence-based constructs. The goal of science, argues Professor Mona, is not necessarily discovering the truth, but finding utility in what is discovered.

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.

Community members are also encouraged to download the MobileNOW! parking app from the Google Play Store, available for both iPhone and Android phones. Users can pay with a credit or debit card, right from their phones. If you download the app, the location number for Mesa College is 2000.

1–4 p.m.
Linda Vista Library
2160 Ulric St., San Diego, CA 92111

Ahoy! Life as a pirate is rough and rugged, and it requires scientific ingenuity. Join us to learn the fundamental suite of traditional nautical arts. Students will learn the elements of celestial navigation, sword fighting, weather prediction, knot tying, ship construction and sailing. Students will gain an understanding of both the bravery and the ingenuity of traditional sailors as well as the beauty and elegance of modern physical theory.

Saturday, May 26, 2018
Rocket Science: Engineering Paper Airplanes!
Linda Vista Library
2160 Ulric St., San Diego, CA 92111

Learn the physics behind rockets and current rocket design. This workshop will culminate with a testable rocket model design and launch. This class also provides an introduction to current space exploration and the engineering process behind a successful rocket design, launch and mission. Students will test their ideas about the physics of rockets using a water bottle rocket launch as they increase their understanding of Newton’s Laws of Motion, mathematical problem solving, innovative thinking and the aesthetics of rocket design.

The Time-Traveler’s Magic Show is a blend of magic, science and some technology that hasn’t been invented yet. The theme of the show is that “magic” and “science” are really the same thing. H.G. Wells, author, collector and Time Traveler, shares some of the magic and technologies he has collected from the past and future. The show promises to be entertaining for family audiences, while promoting curiosity among children.
