Nerd Nite #1 – Something Science This Way Comes

Something Science This Way Comes was a success! In our first ever Nerd Nite, we had almost one hundred people fill up our venue of Notsuoh. Who were our speakers?

The night opened up with Andy Boyd, one of the contributors of Engines of Our Ingenuity with his talk entitled… Why Voting Mechanisms Can’t Work

Andy Boyd

Afterwards, our co-boss, Amado Guloy, gave a brief intro to superspace crystallography with…Why I Hate Ellipsoids and How Superspace Saved Me

Amado Guloy

And the night was closed out by Prof. Douglas Natelson with…Presenting Science to the Public: “It’s late; we’re all tired; why should any of us care about anything you’re saying?”

All in all, it was a success, and even then, we were able to get special shoutouts from our speakers both on Engines of Our Ingenuity and on Prof. Natelson’s blog, Nanoscale Views! We look forward to seeing y’all for Nerd Nite Houston #2 in February, with Love is in the Air!
