Interested in science, but hate the stuffy atmosphere of a college lecture hall? Want to learn more about the latest technology breakthroughs in normal English, minus the jargon? Then Café Scientifique Pittsburgh at Carnegie Science Center is the place to be!
Café Sci is THE place in Pittsburgh where anyone interested in science can get together in a really cool setting to discuss today's science issues with experts, and best of all... it's not a lecture! After a brief introduction by our monthly guest speaker, the evening is dedicated to informal discussion, eating, and drinking.
Terry Precision Bicycles for Women
CEO, Heart of Steel Bicycles
Have you ever ridden on a bike that just felt right – or that just felt wrong? At its heart, a bicycle frame is an exercise in trigonometry. As with dominoes, changing one element often has effects on the other elements. The body of the rider also has to fit into the equation. There's no better way to understand these relationships than by designing a bicycle frame.
Georgena Terry will help you understand this very simple, yet very sophisticated machine, based on her background in mechanical engineering and her experience in designing bicycles. The next time you look at your bike, you'll see it through different eyes. Learn why women's bodies often call for different bike design than men's, and why some bikes might wear you out more than others. And if you're in the market for a new bicycle, you'll be prepared to understand the meaning behind all the numbers.
