According to Dr. Eric Peterson, performing scientific experiments and climbing mountains have much in common — both are filled with exciting and challenging choices and opportunities. Peterson will present the second annual James O. Stoffer Lecture, “A Mountainous Romp in Science and Life,” at 3:30-4:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27, in Room G3 of Schrenk Hall. A reception for Peterson will begin at 3 p.m. in G3.
Peterson is the founder of Rochester Institute of Technology’s REMADE Institute and leads the recycling node of the institute. It is one of 13 national research consortiums that make up the Manufacturing USA federal initiative.
The lecture series is funded by a gift from James O. Stoffer, which uses royalties from his patent for an environmentally friendly chrome-free paint used on military aircraft. Stoffer is a Curators’ Distinguished Professor emeritus of chemistry. He served on S&T’s faculty from 1963 until his retirement in 2000.
