Artists and scientists tend to live and work in very different worlds. In major cities across three continents the question is being asked: “Is there something to be gained in our understanding of humankind by encouraging scientists and artists to share their ideas?”
This series of salons brings guest artists, Puget Sound faculty members, and others together on the free Third Thursday of each month at Tacoma Art Museum or on campus. Events typically run from 6 to 8 p.m., with food, mingling, conversation, and more.
6:00 p.m. Food, drinks, and mingling
6:30 p.m. Presentation and Q&A
7:30 p.m. More mingling
This November we have a special Art Sci workshop with Makey-Makeys.
At Puget Sound we now have a new Makerspace, with 3D printers, 3D scanners, small electronics and tools for innovation and creation. On Thursday November 30th, we issue a Makey-Makey challenge: Use them to design a device that can help differently abled people navigate the world better. Can you control a car without your hands, or help a blind person turn on a warning note while crossing the street. Part Art, Part, Science, Part Tech.
Come, converse, collaborate and change the world
This event will happen in the new Makerspace in the basement of the Collins Memorial Library.
We will start at 5:30 pm with a brief introduction to the space with food and drinks.
At 6:00 pm Makey Makeys, their use and the challenge will be explained. From 6:15 pm to 7:15 pm you will work in groups to create your devices. From 7:15 to 8:00 pm, we will share and test each others devices.
Exciting! Details will follow soon...
