College of Engineering Distinguished Lecture, featuring Ira Flatow

Where do new ideas come from? How does necessity become the mother of invention? Ira Flatow, host of Public Radio's "Science Friday," talks about the Catalysts of Creativity: the inspirations for new ideas. RSVP at

From the telephone to computer mouse, from Hedy Lamarr to Radar O'Reilly, one doesn't have to be an Einstein or a Steve Jobs to be creative. Searching through inventions and patents of the last hundred years, Flatow digs out some of the more unusual, interesting and humorous sparks of imagination.

Poster session at 5 pm. Lecture begins at 6 pm.
