Get ready to flash your intelligence

You’re working late in a downtown Atlanta skyscraper. You realize that you are all alone in the building. You glance out the window: Below you see hordes of people start moving chaotically, then spontaneously flow together into an orderly stream.

Don’t be a bystander. It’s time to put on some sensible shoes and listen to those voices in your head. Sign-up to join a science flash mob of hundreds of people demonstrating how molecules evolve and self-assemble.

The first “Group Intelligence” flash mob begins on the Emory Quad next Thursday, April 14 at 7 pm. Group Intelligence will spread to downtown Atlanta’s Woodruff Park the following week. From there, it’s going national and to Europe.

It’s all part of the daring convergence of science and art brought to you by Out of Hand Theater and the Center for Chemical Evolution. The center is a collaboration of Emory and Georgia Tech, funded by the NSF and NASA.

Click here to join Group Intelligence. Remember: It takes a diversity of molecules, and people, to ensure our survival.
