As Eater Atlanta previously reported, renowned chef Jose Andrés will be lecturing in Atlanta with Harvard Physics Professors Michael P. Brenner and David A. Weitz. The location has been confirmed as Georgia Tech and the three lectures will be held on Saturday, March 10 at 9:30 a.m.
As the title of the event (Squishy Physics) indicates, Andrés, Brenner, and Weitz will get into the science of food because:
"Most of what we eat is squishy—behaving as a solid on a plate, or as a liquid when processed in your mouth. Squishy Physics investigates materials that are soft and easy to deform...The lectures will cover interesting and entertaining physical questions that are critical to cooking and understanding the properties of food."
In conjunction with the Fernbank Science Center, awards will also be presented to the top Dekalb County high school student submissions for the Squishy Physics photography contest, with all submissions on display at the event.
The lectures are free and open to the public, but registration is required here.
