Science and Comics with The League of Extraordinary Scientists and Engineers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What happens when you bring a nanotechnologist, an A.I. research scientist, and an entomologist together in a room? You form the League of Extraordinary Scientists and Engineers! Jeane Wong (LXS founder and educator) is obsessed with science and has a solid origin with superheros and discovering those same powers in the real world, from entomology to rockets to robots and beyond. Jeane, along with panel guests Dr. Sunny Fugate (engineer, A.I. research, space and naval warfare systems command), Dr. Paige Howorth (entomology curator, San Diego Zoo), Dr. Tom Darlington (nanoComposix), and Jeff McQuaid (marine biologist, J. CraigVenter Institute and Scripps Institute of Oceanography) discuss how comics and science fiction push scientists and engineers to rocket past what they know is possible at any given moment and into an otherwise unimaginable future. Come curious and leave inspired.
