PPM director featured in Nerd Nite talk at Chabot Space and Science Center.

Museum founder and director Michael Schiess gave an entertaining and informative presentation in the Chabot Planetarium August 25th as part of the East Bay Nerd Nite series.

Using a power point produced by Schiess and PPM Staff Designer Lynn Gustafson the subject of how to play pinball better using science and a little knowledge of physics and Geometry was well received by the Nerd Nite visitors. The crowd was invited afterwards to try these newly learned tricks on the machines in the exhibition gallery on the 3rd floor. Many of the diagrams featured were from an obscure tome circa 1979 titled "Pinball Wizardry" by Robert Polin and Michael Rain. Snassle the cat was featured in the ending which exemplified the notion that anyone can play the game.
