How to Succeed with Physics…or at Least Look Great Trying is the topic of the latest OMSI Science Pub on Monday, September 10, 2012 at the Bagdad Theater (3702 SE Hawthorne):
Are you an aspiring runway model or secret agent? Would you like to have the elegance and confidence of one? If so, you must become familiar with basic physics concepts. Christine McKinley will show you how a knowledge of physics is crucial in everyday situations like first dates, stage dives, and arson.
Maybe you didn’t pay attention to physics in high school because you didn’t think the subject was relevant to your life goals, but there is no escaping gravity. Whether you want to be a stunt woman, a rock drummer, or a martini critic, being on friendly terms with physics will help you get there in style. You can’t change the laws of physics and you can’t escape them. So, why not put them to work for you? Apply your knowledge of momentum, atomic bonding, and thermodynamics to ramp up the glamour factor in your life. Come and find out how.
