Grant Imahara, a member of the Discovery Channel’s MythBusters team, will show clips from the show and explain how they do it all. Imahara is a former animatronics engineer and model maker for George Lucas’s Industrial Light & Magic, the special-effects shop, where he worked on such movies as The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and A.I.: Artificial Intelligence. He also worked on The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions. Imahara earned a BS in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California. Mythbusters is a science and technology television series that takes a light-hearted look at modern misconceptions and the bizarre claims of Urban Legends and puts them to the test.
This event is part of Engineers’ Week 2011.
