Science Night on electricity & magnetism Sept. 12
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside Science Night series celebrates its 10th year of educating students and the community about science with a further look at the power of electricity and the attraction of magnets. Wednesday, Sept. 12, the series' creator Physics Professor Dr. Paul Mohazzabi presents "Wonders of Electricity and Magnetism-Part 2" in Greenquist Hall room 103 at 7 p.m. on the campus at 900 Wood Rd., Kenosha.
"In this presentation, the basic principles of electricity, magnetism, and electromagnetism are explained in detail," Dr. Mohazzabi said. "The presentation involves a large number of demonstrations which will be interesting, and maybe surprising, to some members of the audience."
He went on to say the program is aimed at anyone with an interest in understanding how electricity, magnetism, and electromagnetism work. Part 1 of the program drew a full lecture hall earlier this year.
Dr. Mohazzabi received his Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 1975. He joined UW-Parkside in 1986 as a professor of physics. His current research interest is thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of nanosystems.
"Wonders of Electricity and Magnetism-Part 2" with Dr. Paul Mohazzabi is free and open to the public. High school and middle school students and faculty with an interest in math and science are encouraged to attend. Admission is free and parking in the Student Center lot is free after 6:30 p.m. Refreshments, including a cake to celebrate the series' anniversary, will be served.For more information, call 262-595-2172.
