      Over 140 people had a blast using found objects to imagine and create a model of their ideal city -- with a focus on walkability -- at the fall quarter Cal Poly Science Cafe. James Rojas, a city and regional planner and the founder of Place It! joined us from L.A. with two giant blue shopping bags stuffed with random objects that inspired the imagination. Participants (the majority of whom were Cal Poly students) came up with fun and innovative ideas, including building a giant slide as a tourist attraction, closing downtown to cars and building more bike lanes. Our Cal Poly experts in conversation: Beverly Bass, Assistant Professor, Landscape Architecture Kelly Main, Assistant Professor, City and Regional Planning Heather Starnes, Assistant Professor, Kinesiology Stephanie Teaford, Community Liaison for STRIDE (Science through Translational Research in Diet and Exercise) Learn more about it: http://lib.calpoly.edu/blog/outloud/2012/10/23/on-foot-adventures-in-city-planning/ This Science Cafe was held on October 18, 2012.
