Actress and neuroscientist, Mayim Bialik, has been selected through a vote of electronics industry professionals to present the opening keynote at IPC APEX EXPO on Tuesday, February 14th, 2017 in San Diego.
Bialik will present, “The Big Bang Theory: Making Science Cool (& Funny)” and will discuss how the show, “The Big Bang Theory” has helped to break down perceived science "barriers" to make it cool and fun.
On the show, Bialik plays neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler and uses her own Ph.D. in neuroscience as the foundation for her unforgettable character. She’ll share her keen scientific mind and her wonderful sense of humour as she explores the work of the brain, of behavioural development, of her life as an actress and scientist, and of the special relationship that exists between “The Big Bang Theory” and its audience.
“We’ve had great success asking industry to vote for the opening keynote and we’re thrilled to have Ms. Bialik speak to attendees at IPC APEX EXPO 2017, said Alicia Balonek, Senior Director, trade shows and events. “As a result of opening the vote to industry, we’ve had standing-room attendance at past opening keynotes. Most important, IPC is making a commitment to deliver what members and industry want and we’ll continue to elevate the experience of this event.”
Bialik’s opening keynote is free to all registered IPC APEX EXPO attendees. The conference and exhibition will run February 14th–16th, 2017. For more information, visit here.
