MS&T’09 is 95 percent pure science. The other 5 percent is designed to be on the lighter side. For example, the student mug drop and putting contest are always big draws on the expo floor. Rustum Roy, too, has promised to bring “The ExperiMentalist” to the ACerS Annual Banquet.
And, this year there is some art being added the meeting events. Arun Wagh, chair of the ACerS Art Division, has organized a display at MS&T’09 featuring ceramic art pieces made by graduate students in the Alfred University Division of Ceramic Art. Various sculptures and ceramic vessels will be on display Tuesday, Oct. 27, and Wednesday, Oct. 28, in the Expo Hall at the Convention Center. Two MFA students from Alfred will be there to answer questions and talk about their work. Look for the display at the entrance to the Expo Hall. Please stop by to take a look and support the student art program as well as the Society’s Art Division.
