Part of the series: Meet a Scientist
1400 S DuSable Lake Shore Dr, Chicago IL 60605
About this event
Join NASCAR Engineer Jeremy Casperson to discuss NASCAR engineering and the aerodynamics of auto racing. Visitors will get an up-close view of a NASCAR tire and racetrack asphalt while learning more about how the two surfaces interact during a race.
Scientists, researchers, and collections managers are behind the scenes every day, uncovering new information and taking care of our collection.
During Meet a Scientist, you can find them in the Grainger Science Hub. They'll discuss their work and share real items from the museum’s collection of nearly 40 million objects. From collections care to field work, and dinosaurs to ecology, there’s a world of science to explore.
Visit the Science Hub on select weekdays for an up-close look at what our researchers do every day.
