Event description: 

If Elvis had been a scientist, he would have become a materials physicist just to watch atoms shake, rattle and roll. This Saturday, listen to Professor Judy Cha tell us about the tools she uses to not only watch atoms move, but also to manipulate them into structures one atom at a time! 

Yale Scientific Magazine’s /Synapse/ will lead fun demonstrations from 10am - 11am and the talk will take place from 11am - noon. Science on Saturdays is hosted by Professor Kurt Zilm

Science on Saturdays is an award-winning lecture series that features scientists whose passion for their work inspires us all. Each event involves a lecture by a Yale professor and engaging science demonstrations by Yale college students. Science on Saturdays provides an opportunity for Yale scientists and residents of New Haven and beyond to come together over a shared sense of wonder. Past topics have included “Why Birds Are Dinosaurs,” “Nu Frontiers in Neutrino Physics,” and “Chaperonins: Molecular Origami Machines.”
