Event Details

“Science in the Movies” explores how science is portrayed in popular cinema. Our April event will focus on Natural Disaster movies. Whether it’s earthquakes, tidal waves, twisters, meteors or sharknadoes, natural disasters have always been popular fodder for Hollywood filmmakers. Join our panel of experts, including: Elizabeth Gardner (WRAL Meteorologist), Dr. Marsha Gordon (NCSU Film Scholar and host of WUNC’s “Movies on the Radio”) and Dr. Jessica Whitehead (climate change expert with NC Sea Grant) as they show and discuss a collection of movie clips that are frightening, fantastic, funny and far-fetched, and answer your questions.

This event is being organized and sponsored by Science Communicators of North Carolina (SCONC) and the Duke Initiative for Science & Society, and hosted by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. It is being offered as an official event of the North Carolina Science Festival.
