April 24 • 4:30 p.m. • STEM Auditorium
Doors open at 4 p.m.
For almost a decade, Grant Imahara was one of the hosts of Discovery Channel's Mythbusters. Using a blend of science and fun, he put urban legends to the test, sometimes with explosive results. Before becoming a Mythbuster, Grant was a model maker and animatronics engineer at George Lucas’s Industrial Light and Magic (ILM), where he worked in movie special effects. At ILM, he worked on 11 feature films, including Star Wars: Episodes 1-3, Artificial Intelligence: AI, and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
Grant is currently the co-host of the Netflix original series, White Rabbit Project, where he and his co-stars investigate the science behind the greatest inventions, the most daring heists, and unusual pop culture events in American history.
The Distinguished Lecture Series is free and open to the public.
Registration for this event is now closed. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk-ins are welcome, but priority will be given to individuals and groups that have pre-registered.
We will do our best to keep groups together, but it may not be possible due to limited seating. Once the auditorium is full, guests will be directed to an overflow area where live-streaming will be available. Doors open at 4 p.m.
