Most of what we eat is squishy - behaving as a solid on a plate, or as a liquid when processed in your mouth.
Squishy Physics investigates materials that are soft and easy to deform and, in most cases, are made from mixtures of phases. The lectures will cover interesting and entertaining physical questions that are critical to cooking and understanding the properties of food. This series is held annually in the Spring.
A free public lecture series that focuses on the physical sciences and highlights cutting edge research here at Georgia Tech.
These talks are open to everyone and hope to foster a sense of wonder and curiosity for Nature. At the end of each session, public engagement is encouraged during a questions and answer period with the speaker. Come curious and bring a friend.
