Dr. Meisa Salaita has made it her mission to help people see beauty in chemistry. After exploring the subject in depth in graduate school (Northwestern University, Ph.D. 2006), Meisa spent a few years teaching high school. During her time in the classroom, Meisa not only spread her love of chemistry to her students, but also taught the kids about her other passion ‚Äď sculpture. Following her time in the classroom, Meisa¬†began to explore the intersection of science and art through a different type of teaching¬†‚Ästto the public. Meisa co-founded and co-directs the Atlanta Science Festival and writes articles for HowStuffWorks.com, and dabbles a little in radio science journalism.

The Atlanta Science Festival has been a collaboration of scientific, educational, corporate, civic, cultural and community organizations led by founding partners Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology and the Metro Atlanta Chamber.

The event also has support from more than 60 organizations that have signed up to be festival partners, among them Mercer University and Mercer Health Sciences Center (Gold Sponsor), The National Science Foundation/NASA Center for Chemical Evolution (Gold Sponsor), and Delta Air Lines Inc. (Silver Sponsor) as well as the city of Atlanta.

So for those of you who aren't familiar with Whirlyball, it's basically a combination of lacrosse, basketball, and BUMPER CARS (with a liberal dose of awesomeness!).  You don't have to be good at any of that, but you do have to be willing to have fun :-P.

We will be going to Mad, Mad Whirled on Delk Rd at 4, and we will have the courts for about an hour, so plan accordingly.  Since they're pretty strict on time, and since the place is a little hard to find, we'll be meeting at the Brazilian Bakery around the corner at 3:30 for a quick snack, and then caravan over to the courts.

So practice your bumping and throwing skills and get ready for a fun time!  Tell your friends, since it's way more fun if we can fill the 10-person court, and we have time to play around 4 rounds, so we can accommodate even more if needed :)

P. S. Please only sign up if you're sure you can make it (or are prepared to pay regardless), since they charge us based on our reservation, rather than how many people show up.

I will send out my number closer to the event :)
