About the Exhibit
The nature of the scientific mind may be discovered in elegant mathematical expressions and beautifully designed experiments, and also perhaps by reading "Drool science" or Robert Bakers, "A stress analysis of a strapless evening gown". Our exhibit has chosen this second discovery route by examining examples of scientist's humor and humor with a science theme. Our exhibit's contributors include Chicago faculty and students as well as our own collection of jokes, cartoons, and funny bone-tickling stories.
The exhibit was on display from October 1, 2002 to March 31, 2003 in the atrium of the John Crerar Library at the University of Chicago.
We received wonderful suggestions! Thank you to everyone who
contributed - you certainly made us chuckle.
A very special thank you to our Faculty Member who graciously posed for the "funny scientist" picture on the main poster board. The picture makes the exhibit complete!
