Presentations sought for TechRev Day at Los Alamos ScienceFest

LOS ALAMOS, N.M., July 22, 2014—Organizers of Los Alamos ScienceFest, a weeklong celebration of science, are seeking innovative presentations from passionate people with a love of innovation.

“TechRev Day, a ScienceFest event, will showcase a series of 15-minute presentations from students, educators, scientists, engineers, bloggers, inventors and other creative types who are just bursting at the seams to share their contagious enthusiasm about innovation or innovation-related topics,” said Shandra Clow of Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Richard P. Feynman Center for Innovation, and organizer of the TechRev Day event. “Richard Feynman had an uncanny ability to enthusiastically and enjoyably convey technical topics to the layman, and we’re looking for individuals with enthusiasm in doing the same, to wow and entertain ScienceFest attendees with a topic about which they are extremely passionate.”

Potential TechRev Day presenters have until Aug. 8 to apply. Presenters should submit a tentative title of the presentation, a 140-character description of it, and a short bio and headshot to Clow at clow@lanl.gov. Final selections will be made by Aug. 22, with presenters being notified the same day. TechRev Day presentations will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 11, so there are plenty of opportunities for people to speak. For more information about the event, contact Clow at the email address above.

Los Alamos ScienceFest, a partnership between the Laboratory, the community and other partners, strives to highlight the scientific wealth of the Pajarito Plateau and to inspire current and future generations to appreciate the science that is all around us.

The new rocket fuel and motor design adds a higher degree of safety by separating the fuel from the oxidizer, both novel formulations that are, by themselves, not able to detonate.
