A perfect bowling game is the one true pursuit of Jeff Lebowski. But does he realize the symphony of mechanical and mathematical equations that define the perfect strike? Dr. Craig Wiegert does and he will explain to us the absolute miracle of physics that a perfect bowling game entails, but not before we have a little Wii Bowling fun and some munchies.
The evening starts at 7:15 pm in the Ciné Lab where we'll transform the space with a rug to tie the room together, play Wii Bowling, enjoy nachos and a White Russian from the cash bar. Then its an 8:00 pm film with an introduction, "The Dude’s Perfect Game: How force, velocity and spin combine to create a strike" from Dr. Craig Wiegert, Associate Professor and Associate Department Head of Physics and Astronomy at UGA. This is sure to help us all improve our game.
Fantastic Fungi is a descriptive time-lapse journey about the magical, mysterious and medicinal world of fungi and their power to heal, sustain and contribute to the regeneration of life on Earth that began 3.5 billion years ago.
“Schwartzberg’s film quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.”

From mycologists to mushroom lovers, our last Science on Screen® event is sure to please everyone. Join us at 6:30 pm for a reception featuring tastings prepared by The National and the CCSD Culinary Arts Program with local mushrooms from UGarden. Collective Harvest is providing some local vegetables and will be on hand for discussion.
Drs. Anthony Glenn (Toxicologist, mycotoxins, USDA) and Marin Brewer (Plant pathologist, UGA) will let us know why mushrooms should be loved and feared with their brief talk, "Fantastic Fungi: friend and foe".
