TALK at 12:00:
Kathy Prestridge, DX-3, LANL
Spills & Ripples: Fun properties of Fluids


Kathy will demonstrate some of the interesting parlor tricks that you can do for your friends and family which demonstrate the basic principles of fluids, such as pressure, surface tension, and density. The behavior of fluids is important in the study of fluid instabilities, and also in geophysical flows, biological systems, and predicting the weather. This will be a hands-on talk, and audience participation is encouraged.

LAWIS will provide a selection of drinks.
Members and Nonmembers Welcome!

The room is reserved from 11:30 to 1:30 people to get together and network before and/or after the talk. Bring your lunch or pick up something at the Hot Rocks Java Cafe (next door to the ATML). You are welcome to come early, late, or for just the talk at noon, and questions are encouraged!

Note you need a parking pass to park at the Research Park. I'm not sure if we will be able to provide these, so if you need to drive from another LANL location please consider using the LANL Taxi.
