Presenters from Israel, England and Canada Latest to be Added to Festival's Growing Global List
The Festival's plans to go international - to seek and add renowned scientists, engineers and other representatives in technology from around the world as presenters - is quickly gaining momentum!
Here's just a brief sampling of the presenters from around the globe you can expect to find at the 2012 Festival Expo:
Beau Lotto, Ph.D., is the internationally-known neuroscientist who founded and directs Lottolab, a hybrid art studio and science laboratory based at University College London's Institute of Ophthalmology in Great Britain. His groundbreaking work illustrates how the brain's visual system functions is changing our perspectives on vision - from how we perceive color illusions to how we interact visually with technology, art, music and learning.
Ori Weyl, or "Dr. Molecule," is a professional actor and director. Based in Jerusalem, Israel, Dr. Molecule is widely known for his exciting, theatrical performances in science that combine humor, audience interaction, theatrical tension and games with scientific accuracy in wowing young audiences on a wide range of science topics. His show last year won him the first prize at the "Wonders" science festival in Finland.
Joseph Schwarcz, Ph.D., or "Dr. Joe," is director of the Office for Science & Society at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Known throughout Canada for his passion for demystifying science and students and the rest of the public, especially through magic tricks, he is a staple on the Canadian Discovery Channel and other media outlets in the country.
