Erin Zamrzla, author, At Home with Handmade Books, presented Stitched! Hands-on Japanese Bookbinding at Kennedy Library, April, 2012. The event was part of the opening celebration for the spring exhibit, Pressing Forward: The Book Club of California at 100.
Kennedy Library’s grand staircase was transformed into a live game board using wire, cans and balloons as part of the Cal Poly Science Café series. To play the game, we aimed and threw tennis balls at the cans, which acted as live switches. A digital scoreboard tracked the team’s cans as they were knocked over; it was shared on displays throughout the library and on participants’ mobile devices.

Dr. Dianne DeTurris, a professor in aerospace engineering at Cal Poly, presented Hypersonic! How Commercial Space Flight Works at Science Cafe in Kennedy Library, January 2012.
Before her talk, Science Cafe student assistant Jordan Hooper asked Dr. DeTurris a few questions. In this short video interview she talks briefly about why she didn't become an astronaut, what her experience has been as a woman in the field, her current research in hypersonics and thoughts on other life in the universe.
Science Cafe is an informal speaker series offered by Cal Poly's Kennedy Library that explores scientific topics with an expert.
