Tonight's Nerd Nite is all about saving. Specifically, this evenings presentations will cover saving lives through evidence based medicine, saving energy by living off the grid, and saving time. Ok, that last one may have been a bit of a stretch, but daylight saving time may be come up. From the A2NN website:
Testing, testing! NNA2 alum and PhD/MD student Carl Engelke is here to talk about medical testing – the how, the why, and the reality of what some of these common screening exams can and can’t tell us. Science!Sounds like a great set of presentations. Nerd Nite is at Live. Doors are at 6:30 and talks start at 7:00. Cover is free thanks to AADL.
Hay is for houses! Professor, designer, and farmer Joe Trumpey built his house out of straw and field rocks and determination and ingenuity, and he’s here to tell you the practical side of transitioning to an off-the-grid, sustainable lifestyle.
(H)our third speaker is engineer Matt Carpenter – he’ll take a moment to explain the stories behind leap years and the agony and ecstasy that is falling back and springing forward with Daylight Saving Time.
