Events - July 2010

Tuesday, July 27, 2010 — 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM EDT

Please join professor Susan Lolle and students in the Biology 120 course for the seventh semi-annual biology film festival.
 

As part of their final lab exercise, students have created short films that focus on a plant module, such as such as response to gravity (gravitropism), plant response to touch (thigmotropism), or how sunflowers move in response to a light source (phototropism).

Students are also free to add photo stills, music and animation to their videos.

Thursday, July 15, 2010 — 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM EDT

The Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology presents

Terahertz Quantum Cascade
Lasers and Applications

Professor Qing Hu
Electrical Engineering
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Friday, July 9, 2010 — 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM EDT

The Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology presents

Fluidics in Energy Applications: Past, Present and Future
Dr. David Sinton
Canada Research Chair
Integrated Microfluidics and Nanofluidics
University of Victoria


Microfluidic and nanofluidic transport phenomena are commonly exploited for life sciences research and diagnostic applications. This talk will provide an overview of our past, present and future work in microfluidics for energy applications, from fuel cells to carbon sequestration to photobioreactors.

Thursday, July 8, 2010 — 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM EDT

The second annual University of Waterloo Management Consulting Club cocktail event will bring together consultants from The Boston Consulting Group, Deloitte Consulting, McKinsey & Co., and Monitor Group to University of Waterlooaterloo this week for a panel discussion, followed by a networking session.

As an optional addition, we are collecting resumes for interested firms; these must be emailed to uwmcc.team@gmail.com by Monday July 5th  at 11:59pm to be included. (see website below for format details)

Thursday, July 8, 2010 — 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM EDT

Your opinions matter!  Take some time to share yours and join us for a open discussion with Marcel Coutu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Oil Sands Trust.


Admission is FREE. Pre-registration is encouraged.

Wednesday, July 7, 2010 — 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM EDT

You're invited to an evening of star gazing at the Gustav Bakos Observatory.

The Observatory is open for public tours on the first Wednesday of each month, offering a chance to look through the university's telescope. This will be preceded by a short talk on astronomy (around 30 minutes) plus an opportunity to ask questions, followed by a tour of the dome.

Tuesday, July 6, 2010 — 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EDT

Dr. Brian McNamera of the University of Waterloo's Physics and Astronomy Department will be hosting a talk on black holes Tuesday July 6, 2010 at Kitchener's Children's Museum.

Dr. McNamera has a backgroud studying giant black holes weighing upwards of one billion times the mass of the Sun. These are thought to lurk at the centers of all massive galaxies. The study of energy released by spin breaking and infalling matter onto such supermassive black holes and how this may be regulating the growth of galaxies and clusters of galaxies is the primary focus of his research.
