The Not-So-Secrets of Oak Ridge

BY ALICE TAYLOR
@ VOL 17 ON NOV 12, 2015

“When I tell people what I do, they often say ‘oh, you must not be able to tell us anything about it, it must be top secret’. That is totally not true.”

In The Not-So-Secrets of Oak Ridge from PechaKucha Night Knoxville’s 17th volume, Alice Taylor provides some insight into what physicists are up to at the Lab. Most people in Knoxville know that some sort of science is happening in Oak Ridge, but they often don’t know what it's about and how it might one day impact their lives. She explains how the huge new facility - the Spallation Neutron Source -  helps explain weird materials like ferromagnets and superconductors. We enter the world of quantum mechanics to explain how we investigate the tiny, microscopic electrons which ultimately make a magnet stick to your fridge.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, April 20th, 2016.

PKN Barcelona Planting Trees

PechaKucha Night in Barcelona recently teamed up for a new eco project with Tree-Nation in which they are planting one tree for each of its presenters. PKN Barcelona organizer Petz Scholtus explains: Pecha Kucha Barcelona is planting trees: it’s fun, and the trees fight poverty, desertification, deforestation, and climate change. For Vol. 5, we partnered up with Tree-Nation, and from now on every speaker will be given a tree that is planted in the growing heart-shaped forest in the Nigerian desert. The trees are virtually planted over the internet, where you can see it grow, water it, add photos, and connect to other trees and their people while a real tree grows in Tree-Nation’s plantation. Here is a direct link to Pecha Kucha Barcelona’s forest. Check out and join Tree-Nation, the biggest free Internet social network with the objective of planting trees.
