Squishy Physics 2013
Saturday, February 2, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EST)
In this exciting event, three lectures will be presented from renown Chef Richard Blais (The Spence), UCLA Professor Amy Rowat, and Emory University Professor Sidney Perkowitz. Awards will also be presented to the top middle and high school student submissions for the Squishy Physics photography contest, which is organized in conjunction with the Fernbank Science Center, with the help of ORT America.
Most of what we eat is squishy - behaving as a solid on a plate, or as a liquid when processed in your mouth. Squishy Physics investigates materials that are soft and easy to deform and, in most cases, are made from mixtures of phases. The lectures will cover interesting and entertaining physical questions that are critical to cooking and understanding the properties of food.
