Dr. JoAnn Kuchera-Morin presented the annual McPherson ERI Lecture speaking on "Harnessing Sight and Sound to Explore Complex Information” at the McPherson Eye Research Institute.
The AlloSphere as part of its outreach initiatives, is partnering with MOXI (The Wolf Museum of Exploration and Innovation). This partnership will involve the design and setup of an Immersive Media Theater showcasing JoAnn Kuchera-Morin's, Lance Puntnam's and Luca Peliti's interactive exploration of the electron wave functions in a hydrogen-like atom.
