Science Forum Concludes with Green Locomotives

 

Pete Claussen, founder and CEO of Gulf and Ohio Railways Inc. and Knoxville Locomotive Works, will present “Green Locomotives” on Friday at this semester’s final Science Forum.

The Science Forum is a weekly brown-bag lunch series that allows professors and area scientists to discuss their research with the general public in a conversational presentation.

The Science Forum begins at noon in Room C-D of Thompson-Boling Arena. Attendees can bring lunch or purchase it at the arena. The forty-minute presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session. It is free and open to the public.

Claussen’s talk will feature solutions and ideas about green locomotives from Knoxville Locomotive Works. KLW creates products that do more work while consuming less fuel.

The Science Forum is sponsored by the UT Office of Research and Quest, an initiative to raise awareness of the research, scholarship, and creative activity happening on campus.
