PNW AIAA presents Picnic at Magnuson Park, a full evening of discovery, eating, listening, learning, and fun on Thursday, July 7th! Friendly dogs allowed as well but kindly keep them on a leash. Please RSVP ASAP until July 1st to get a head count for food and drinks.
Agenda for the Evening
6 pm: Bring items for grilling and for relaxation (lawn chairs, and picnic blankets and any extra items you wish to cook other than burgers and hot dogs). PNW AIAA will provide picnic shelter and tables at Shelter #2 on the water, charcoal and lighter fluid, hot dogs, beef and veggie burger patties, buns, chips, soda, napkins and plates, select condiments and utensils, trash and recycling, and an assortment of music and lawn games.
7 pm: Our guest lecturer, Dr. Amit Bandyopadhyay of WSU, will discuss new opportunities for 3D printing/additive manufacturing technologies in space and beyond. Dr. Bandopadhyay and his students have recently received NASA funding, published articles and entered lunar habitat design competitions showcasing on-demand 3D printing techniques with metals, ceramics, and ….yes, even lunar regolith! For Dr. Bandyopadhyay’s complete biography, please read below. He will also be bringing his family so we’ll get to meet his accomplished wife and lovely children as well. Consider bringing yours too!
8:30-9 ish (dusk): We will migrate next door to watch Ferris Bueller’s Day Off at the kickoff of the Seattle outdoor movie season (http://www.epiceap.com/seattle-outdoor-movies/). The charge is 5 dollars per person for the movie. Friendly dogs, and people are allowed. There will be food trucks present if you prefer to eat later as opposed to before our speaking session.
** Safety note – there will be no lifeguard on duty so any water activities are to be undertaken at your own risk. **
Additionally, no alcohol is allowed in Seattle Parks. For additional information or questions, contact Rachelle Ornan-Stone
