Researchers' Night 2014 – Your Car and an F1 Car: Science and Technology of the XXI Century

26 Sep
2014

Major Event (Highlighted Event)

On Friday, September 26th 2014, from 18:00 to 21:00, some researchers from the IMDEA research Institutes will show us how you may find in a car examples of progress accomplished by science and technologies as diverse and seemingly unrelated as software, materials or food science. Researchers at IMDEA compare -technologically speaking- an F1 car with an everyday automobile as well as the driving of an F1 pilot with any driver in terms of responsiveness, special needs for hydration and nutrition, physical training … Furthermore, they explain the scientific and technical advances that have made possible the evolution from a single-seater to the current car to airports, computers, etc. Before the curtain fall some researchers will pick up their guitars and keyboards and sing some popular songs starring … a car.

Audience: General public. FREE ENTRANCE UNTIL FULL. IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO MAKE A RESERVATION
