Lobby Display:
The Science of the Holidays

The Holidays are upon us, and, naturally, when you think of the holidays, you think of ó Science! From the physics of the dreidel to the biology of reindeer (and the potential of bioluminescence), every symbol, situation, and tradition of the winter holiday season is loaded with Science!

For example, this festive pudding alone contains more Science than calories (and how do you know how many calories? Thatís right, Science!)!

So come check out the Science of the Holidays in the Library lobby!

This display was created by Peter Larsen, Physical Sciences and Engineering Librarian at the University Library.
