FORMAT : two 15-minute presentations + Q&A followed by 1-hour social networking time for members. Share what you're doing, find collaborators!
PRESENTER#1 : DEE BREGER , Director of Microscopy at Drexel University Philadelphia , specialized in photomicrography from the scanning electron microscope, uses her prize-winning images to bring the cloistered realms of science and technology accessible to the general public. Breger's weave through a fascinating world inhabited by minimonsters, invisible seashells, and much much more. Intimate views of the astonishing beauty of a tarantula's fur, pollen or white blood cells caught in the act of doing their thing, or the tiniest minerals representing cosmic impacts on Earth stretch our awareness of scale, time, and place.
Looking forward seeing you soon,
