Science Pub Corvallis: Total Solar Eclipse
There Goes the Sun: The North American Total Solar Eclipse of 2017
With Randal Milstein, Instructor (OSU) and Astronomer-in-Residence for the Oregon NASA Space Grant Consortium.
(Note: This science pub will be held in room 100 of the Learning Innovation Center on the OSU campus. Food and beverages will NOT be served at this event or allowed in the room.)
On August 21, North America will experience a total solar eclipse when the Moon passes directly between the Sun and Earth. The Moon’s shadow, what scientists call the umbra, will pass over Corvallis, Salem and Albany, move on to Madras, Prineville and Redmond and end its Oregon journey over John Day, Baker City and Ontario.
At the May 8 Corvallis Science Pub, Randall Milstein will discuss the science and history of solar eclipses and offer practical tips on how to witness the event safely. “With it crossing so much of North America, it may become the most widely shared natural event in human history,” says Milstein, an astronomy instructor in the Department of Physics and College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University.
What scientists call the “path of totality” — a roughly 75-mile wide highway of darkness — will quickly move eastward through twelve states before reaching South Carolina about 90 minutes after arriving in Oregon.
This is the first total solar eclipse to target the continental United States since 1979, the first to run from the North American Pacific Coast to Atlantic Coast since 1918, and the first total solar eclipse since 1776 with its path of totality completely within the continental United States. Although a total solar eclipse happens about once every 18 months somewhere on Earth, it is still a rare event.
The Science Pub presentation is free and open to the public.
Sponsors of Science Pub include Terra magazine at OSU, the Downtown Corvallis Association and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.

Movement in the Museum: Energy and Flow
Movement in the Museum is a new class series that explores principles of science in the actions and sensations of our moving bodies. Each class kicks off with a hands-on science activity or demonstration to explore the evening’s topic, a 1-hour dance or yoga class, and a 15-minute discussion. No previous dance or yoga experience is required. Open to ages 12 and over.
May 9 | 6-8 PM
Tickets: $10 (OMSI Members & students receive 15% off) Student discount available at the door only.
Please bring your own yoga mat and bottled water.
Energy and Flow: Yoga with Kate Busby
This class begins in OMSI’s laser lab where we will learn about fiber optics and how scientists are using light to transmit information. We will then learn how our bodies receive, process and transmit information through our sense organs and nervous system, and discover how yoga and meditation can help us regulate, heal and support our perceptive and cognitive abilities.

Science Pub Eugene: Biodiversity Threats in Africa
Africa's Most Endangered: Biodiversity Threats in an Age of Extinction
With Nelson Ting, PhD, Associate Professor in the Institute of Ecology and Evolution and the Department of Anthropology at the University of Oregon
May 11, 2017 | Doors open @ 5PM | $5 Suggested Donation
There are five mass extinctions recognized in the history of the Earth. We may be in the midst of a sixth. This is especially apparent in mammalian communities that inhabit the tropical rainforests of Africa, where human-related hunting and habitat alteration are taking their toll on animals such as elephants, gorillas, and rhinos. But what are the larger drivers of these threats, and how are we linked to these issues when we live half a world away?
In this talk, Nelson Ting will discuss global connections driving the ongoing biodiversity crisis and how genetics can be used as a powerful tool to aid in conservation efforts. As examples, he will present research he has conducted on endangered elephants and monkeys found in the rainforests of Africa.
Nelson Ting is an Associate Professor in the Institute of Ecology and Evolution and the Department of Anthropology at the University of Oregon. He obtained his doctoral degree from the City University of New York with training in biological anthropology, ecology, evolution, and genetics. His research uses genetics to better understand conservation issues in wild populations, focusing on the forested regions of the African tropics. This involves a combination of fieldwork and labwork, and over the past 10 years his studies have taken him across the African continent. He currently spends his spare time participating in a voluntary long-term study in primate development called “parenthood” as he tries to keep up with his 3 year-old.
Science Pub Eugene is a monthly event that is open to anyone and everyone. No RSVP or scientific background required. Just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for food, drinks, and knowledge! For more information or to sign up for our mailing list, email: email@example.com.

Science Pub Portland: Science of Engagement & Video Games
Play Your Way to Engaged: The Science of Engagement & Video Games
With Scott Crabtree, Chief Happiness Officer and Founder at Happy Brain Science
Doors Open @ 5PM | $5 Suggested Donation
Over 155 million players play video games, they spend over 22 billion dollars each year, and that's just in the USA alone! What makes video games so compelling? How can you learn to engage yourself or others--at work and beyond--using some of the same techniques that video games use? Come to this highly interactive, game-like session and learn from the peer-reviewed science:
- How you can engage yourself and/or others in the same ways a great video game engages people.
- Why getting "buy-in through why-in" is so compelling when asking others for help.
- What game developers know about mastery and why you should also be “rubber banding”.
Learn the science that game developers use–and the practical steps anyone can take–to boost engagement.
As the Founder and Chief Happiness Officer at Happy Brain Science, Scott Crabtree empowers individuals and organizations to apply findings from cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology to boost productivity and happiness at work. Scott’s clients include Activision, Glu Mobile Games, Universe Sandbox, Microsoft, Blizzard Entertainment, and Dreamworks.
In his 25-year career, Scott has served as a leader in game development and software engineering. He’s founded startups and worked at a variety of technology companies large and small. In early 2012, he resigned his position as Tech Strategist at Intel to pursue his passion full time: helping people apply science to be happier and more successful.
Scott holds a B.A. in Cognitive Science from Vassar College. When he is not immersed in scientific data, he loves spending time with his wife, young daughters, and friends, especially in nature, and also enjoys playing with his rock band. He lives in Portland, Oregon.
Scott Crabtree is a passionate teacher of neuroscience, psychology, and the science of happiness. Through presentations, workshops, coaching, and consulting, Scott is empowering individuals and organizations to apply findings from cutting-edge brain science to boost productivity and happiness at work.
