Abstract:
The Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry is taking its "science pub" outreach efforts across northeast Oregon, with center co-director David C. Johnson set to talk about nanotechnology in appearances Oct. 1-4, respectively, in Hood River, The Dalles, Pendleton and La Grande.

Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry-sponsored science pubs going north

Eugene, OR | Posted on September 17th, 2012

Part of the mission of the Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry -- a joint effort of the University of Oregon and Oregon State University that is funded by the National Science Foundation -- involves education and outreach beyond its central core of materials research.

Johnson will re-engineer his initial talk, "Nanotechnology: Unveiling the big world of the very small," at the upcoming science pubs, which are presented in a casual format, including trivia and a question-and-answer session, as customers enjoy food and drinks. Johnson gave the talk at Calapooia Brewing Co. in Albany in February. The successful event led to a monthly tradition of science talks on the second Wednesday of each month at the Albany location.

The dates and locations for the upcoming science pubs, which will begin at 6:30 and run about 90 minutes, are:

• Monday, Oct. 1, at the Big Horse Brew Pub, 115 State St., in Hood River;

• Tuesday, Oct. 2, at the Rivertap Pub, 703 E. Second St., in The Dalles;

• Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the Prodigal Son Brewery and Pub, 230 SE Court Ave., in Pendleton;

• Thursday, Oct. 4, at the Mt. Emily Ale House, 1202 Adams Ave., in La Grande.

The events are open to the public.

Johnson will describe how materials barely a billionth of a meter in size are about to revolutionize such things as computer technology, renewable energy, medicine and building materials.

Johnson oversees the center's educational efforts. He is the UO's Rosaria P. Haugland Foundation Chair in Pure and Applied Chemistry. Outreach efforts eventually will extend throughout Oregon with the goal to not only discuss nanotechnology's promise but also ignite scientific curiosity among potential students and guide them into the rapidly emerging field.
