New! Growing Batteries and Other Fun Projects
1 session, 2 hours
Batteries, biology, and bacteria come together to show spectacular results from the ultimate “thinking outside the box” project. We’ll also glimpse into the future of a working system for levitating cars, trains, and airplanes without moving parts. Note: this class is a lecture/discussion; actual projects are not completed.
Instructor: Bob graduated with a BS in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer and an MSEE from the University of Connecticut. He began his career in electronic warfare at United Aircraft but eventually turned to design of spacecraft for humanitarian purposes at NASA. Bob likes to say; “Engineering made the dough, Cosmology makes me go.” His courses require no math or formal scientific training, but a good sense of humor is mandatory. Bob believes that starting a class with good jokes improves the learning process. Bob’s other passion is rock climbing, having traveled around the U.S. and Europe in its pursuit.
