Most people can identify the ideas that have revolutionized science as we know it. But what about the thought experiments behind those ideas? The ideas behind the ideas that gave rise to our vision of the world today?
This free interactive & theatrical presentation explored the works of Galileo, Copernicus, Newton, and Einstein and was held on January 31st at ExplorationWorks as part of their Science on Tap project.
Guest speakers Marisa Diaz-Waian (who played the role of the student), Martin Richard (the mad scientist) & Michael Chapman (the philosopher) examined the role of imagination and wonder in scientific and philosophical thinking and invited audience members to share in the fun!
Thank you so much to ExplorationWorks for inviting us to participate in your Science on Tap project, to Helena Civic Television for filming the event, to the Philosophy Learning & Organization (PLATO), to the Carroll College Philosophy and Engineering Departments, and to the Helena community for partaking in the festivities!
