Nerd Nite at the Museum: Leonardo in Contemporary Innovation

Great Hall

Nerd Nite is, put simply, Learning + Drinking.

3 speakers give 18-21 minute presentations while the audience drinks along. Dive into the world of that moody, candle-lit overachiever of an era we call the Renaissance, and in particular, one of its most widely revered and enigmatic thinkers, Leonardo da Vinci. From Mnemotechnics to Fluid Dynamics to the Vitruvian Man's Hernia (maybe), our speakers riff off of themes from Leonardo da Vinci's Codex Leicester and the Power of Observation.

Ages 21+

Speakers include:

  • Sha Xin Wei, Director ASU School of Arts, Media and Engineering and Topological Media Lab
  • Max Evjen and Megan Halpern

Cost: Free event with reservations - RSVP at Phoenix.Nerdnite.com. Be there and be square!
