One Big Topic, Two Events, Three Speakers!

The Big One hits Cal Poly Science Café... twice!

10.13.2010 3:30 p.m. Cal Poly Science Café at the Kennedy Library
10.14.2010 7:00 p.m. Cal Poly Science Café at SLO Brew

Our speakers, Assistant Professor Robb Moss, Alumna Anna Lang, and Graduate Student David Bland share personal stories, video footage and photographs from their post-earthquake research and trips to Haiti, Chile, and China.

These perspectives will inspire a lively and engaging dialogue which may lead us to discuss any aspect of disaster engineering — social, political, scientific, or preparedness — fitting since October 13th is International Day for Natural Disaster Reduction!

Join the conversation about engineering for and against massive threats, and further explore the social, political, scientific, or preparedness considerations that contribute to a disaster's complexity. Both events will begin with similar stories but the conversation at each event will depend on... you!

Both events are FREE and open to the public.
Join the conversation anytime -- Cal Poly Science Café on facebook -- photos, discussions, video
