Nobel laureate and Florida State University Professor Sir Harold Kroto is hosting his annual “Opening Minds” lecture series this October and November to help spur creativity and scientific experimentation within the university and surrounding community.

The seven-lecture series kicked off Oct. 1 with “Créativité Sans Frontières." In this opening lecture, Kroto explored the creativity involved in some of the science that we interact with every day, and encourage attendees to examine their own creative insights.

For example, take the development of the iPhone.

“What kind of genius was involved in creating that kind of innovation,” Kroto said. “I feel this is important to open people’s eyes to this.”

Kroto won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1996 for his discovery of buckyballs, which are carbon molecules that are lightweight, but exceptionally strong. He came to Florida State University in 2004 after teaching for 37 years at the University of Sussex.

In addition to his research activities, Kroto gives public lectures worldwide on science and creativity. He also visits elementary and secondary schools to encourage children to pursue careers in the sciences.

All of the lectures are free and open to the public. They will take place on Wednesdays in the Askew Student Life Cinema.

The remaining lectures are as follows:

* "Science, Society and Responsibility," 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 22: Science has been a part of our everyday lives in the modern world. But for scientists, it has also caused some ethical conflicts. Kroto examines the ethical issues related to our dependence on technology.

* “The Birth of Natural Philosophy and Its Prodigal Son: Science,” 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 29: This lecture looks at the debate and events shaping the pioneers responsible for the birth of science.

* “Across the Universe: Tales of Mystery and Imagination from the Fascinating World of Modern Physics,” 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 5: Guest speaker Mark Riley, a Robert O. Lawton Professor, describes recent physics advances from the discovery of the Higgs particle, commonly known as the God particle, plus the grand mysteries of dark matter and dark energy. Riley’s presentation will provide insight into the excitement modern physicists feel about the universe’s major puzzles.

* “The Educational Revolution and the GooYouWiki World,” 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 12: The Internet is the second great revolution in education; the first was the invention of the printing press. Not only is information today almost instantaneously locatable and accessible, but anyone with expertise and a passion to communicate can contribute to the amazing, globally accessible cache of knowledge.

IDEC South Regional is pleased to host a student furniture design charette during the first day of the South Region Conference at Florida State University. This 6-hour charette will focus on designing lighting, furniture and home furnishings for Groovystuff, Inc. Students will work with founder and president, Chris Bruning, to design and develop lighting and/or furniture that models the Groovystuff furnishings line. He will bring schools from the surrounding Tallahassee area to participate in a one-day design camp during the conference.

In one day, Groovystuff will give students a box of reclaimed materials and will ask them to create a piece of furniture or accessory out of it. The winner gets their product produced and launched on the home furnishings market in 2015.

On October 17, Marlo Ransdell, Assistant Professor of Interior Design at FSU, will travel to High Point Furniture Market to represent the graduate student furniture design work. As an introduction to the home furnishings industry to the surrounding universities and attendees of the IDEC conference in Tallahassee, Professor Ransdell has also been asked to keynote the conference on October 20. Professor Ransdell has brought together other interdisciplinary departments from FSU and surrounding universities to participate in the event and include them in the residential home furnishings market.

Chris Bruning, the founder and president of Groovystuff, will travel to Tallahassee on October 24 to give the keynote address for the Interior Design Educators Council South Region Conference sponsored by the Department of Interior Design at FSU. As part of the conference, he will lead students from the Department of Interior Design and Department of Art at Florida State University and Architecture at Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University in a group furniture design challenge from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. October 24.
