In conjunction with the NC Science Festival, Wake Tech is hosting a one hour talk by scientist, artist, and author, Dr. Goodsell followed by a reception with light refreshments. This event is free but participants are being asked to register for this event using the link posted above.  David Goodsell is an Associate Professor of molecular biology at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California. Dr. Goodsell is an expert in the structure of biomolecules, and uses computer simulations to illustrate molecular organizations and interactions.

As an official 2017 North Carolina Science Festival event, The Artistic Side of Science: An Evening with Dr. David Goodsell is among hundreds of community-based events that are showcasing STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities for the citizens of North Carolina.

Founded in 2010, the North Carolina Science Festival is the first statewide science festival in the United States.  Through a two-week series of community-based events each spring (hosted by schools, colleges, libraries, museums, parks, businesses and other local organizations), the Festival celebrates the economic, educational and cultural impact of science in North Carolina.

“Science is fun, science is everywhere, science is for everyone — that’s what the North Carolina Science Festival is all about,” said Jonathan Frederick, Festival director. “In 2017, we have a special focus on ‘Art and Design’ with events from April 7 through April 23.”

The North Carolina Science Festival is presented by the Biogen Foundation and produced by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. For more information, visit
