CANTON, Mo. – Culver-Stockton College will host “The Human Side of Chemistry: A Portrait of Contemporary Heroes” on Thursday, Sept. 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Science Center, room 208.
With goals of education, inspiration and fun, this talk will focus on a number of famous chemists and will reveal their various personality characteristics and scientific behaviors. Through the use of photographs of famous chemists taken during the last 90 years, the role of various personality and societal factors will be discussed (for example, ego, pride, sincerity, roots and tradition, family, collaboration and competition, social consciousness, and humor). A key part of the presentation will be a video entitled “In the Pursuit of Discovery.” This network quality documentary features three eminent chemists and reveals the essence of their personalities: the late Derek Barton, Carl Djerassi, and Koji Nakanishi.
This presentation is free and open to the public. It is also a part of C-SC’s Academic and Cultural Events program. For more information on this event contact Dr. Mohammed El-Bermawy, professor of chemistry/biology, at (573) 288-6344 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
