Learn about exciting research going on at ASU to produce fuels from sunlight without warming the earth! 4th year graduate student Justin Flory will explain how his research adapts natural photosynthesis from plants and bacteria to make it suitable for capturing and storing solar energy on an industrial scale. He is eager to answer questions and discuss your ideas on alternative energy, climate change, fossil fuels or any of your other scientific curiosities!
Find out more about Justin and his amazing research:

Check out the new EarthScope display touch-screen and make-a-quake interactive activity in the ISTB4 lobby, and then check out the EarthScope table to discover your "Birthquake"... the biggest earthquake to occur on your birth date!
Explore international humanities with one or more School of International Letters and Cultures' multi-cultural performances. On the stage outside our lobby there will be belly dancers, musical performances, an international fashion show, and more.
ISTB4 Room 691, come tour the EarthScope National Office! EarthScope is a nationwide project that attempts to understand the structure and evolution of the North American continent at many scales - from individual faults and volcanoes to the deforming plate boundary and the dynamics of Earth's mantle and core.
Researchers use computers in their work every day, but often the problems they are trying to solve are so big that one computer simply cannot handle the task. By harnessing the power of thousands of computers that are communicating with each other simultaneously, a big problem can be divided and conquered. Sounds simple enough, but coordinating all of these computers requires specialized expertise.
Heather Paul is the lead engineer for the future spacesuit life support system design that will circulate oxygen for breathing and space suit pressurization, and control carbon dioxide and humidity level for U.S. astronauts. She will talk about why we need space suits, the unique materials she's developed and have a space suit on hand to see and touch.
Dr. Paul Espinosa, Award winning Film director and producer, and Dr. Desiree Garcia, Assistant Professor specializing in film studies, will be interacting with guests and presenting on the topic of Transborder films and production.
