Cubicles don't work. How architectural design affects your brain.

Scott explains how architectural design can solve--or make---problems. Citing shapes, materials and plants as just a few of the design elements that make a workspace truly work, he shows how his architecture firm's corporate projects designed with employees and the neighborhood in mind.


Astronomy on Tap: Science is Better with Beer!

Astronomy on Tap features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe.

We will have games and prizes to test and reward your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.


Discover the Dream of Flight at iFLY!

The fun begins bright and early with a STEM seminar and Lab hosted by iFLY Seattle‘s own Ralph Tolle (retired NASA & US Air Force). We will cover everything from wind speed dynamics and terminal velocity all the way to the unique engineering that makes human flight a reality in our vertical wind tunnel.

After we’ve had a chance to discuss the science behind iFLY it’s time to step into the experiment and take a flight in wind speeds of up to 200 miles per hour! This is sure to be a fun, exciting and memorable experience for students and people of all ages.

When: Saturday, October 15th, 9am to 12pm

Where: Meet at iFly 349 Tukwila Pkwy, Tukwila, WA 98188

Who: All Ages (adults and kids – fun to be had by all!)

Cost: $40


Autonomous fish robots and bio-inspired engineering

See how engineers are learning from biological systems to solve problems beyond what our current technologies have been able to achieve. Mathematical models, based on studies of fish, is allowing designed engineered systems to prototype robotic fish that can operate in dynamic ocean conditions over months of continuous use.


Asteroids are closer than you think

Learn about the surprising number and range of near earth asteroids and how they are forming a platform for solar system exploration. Chris Lewicki has worked with NASA and is a leader in pioneering technologies that are addressing the challenges of space habitation and managing extraterrestrial resources.
