Workman Building Room 101
April 15, 2013, thousands lined the streets of Boston for the city’s most celebrated sporting event, the Boston Marathon. At 2:50 pm, two bomb blasts turned the finish line from a scene of triumph to tragedy. Less than five days later, the key suspects were identified. How did investigators transform the chaos of the bombing into a coherent trail of clues combining old-fashioned detective work and modern technology?
Come to the June New Mexico PBS Science Café and watch a segment of NOVA Manhunt—Boston Bombers and then join a discussion with Dr. Van Romero, Vice President of Research and Economic Development at New Mexico Tech. Dr. Romero featured in NOVA Manhunt—Boston Bombers will discuss New Mexico Tech’s recreation of the blast event and the ensuing investigation.
Admission to the café is free, but a reservation is required. RSVP here or to Rose Poston at 277-2396 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Seats are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
