May the 4th Be With You: Star Wars and UIC

Alumni Exchange

May 4, 2022

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM America/Chicago

We invite you to join us for a special Star Wars Day Alumni Exchange. College of Engineering Professor Andrew Johnson will share the history of UIC's Electronic Visualization Laboratory’s involvement in the first Star Wars movie. He will be joined by Physics Professor Dirk Morr, from the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, to talk us through the science of Star Wars. Traveling faster than light, light sabers, the death star, holograms—how does it all work (or not)?
