The Science and Art of Taking a Risk

Join us for the next Cal Poly Science Café, Wednesday, April 28 at 4:30 p.m.
Featuring Dr. Eduardo Zambrano, Professor of Economics, Orfalea School of Business.

The economic problems of recent years came about, in part, because we didn’t understand the risks we, as a society, were collectively taking. This presentation and discussion will explore what it means to take individual and societal risks, how to measure those risks, and how economics, engineering and psychology envision risk differently. Come prepared to be engaged in this lively discussion, and to take some risks (if you dare!).

Kennedy Library 2nd Floor lounge, Free! Refreshments will be served
