Grant Imahara of Mythbusters featured in the College of Engineering Ross and Muriel Cheriton Lecture

Grant Imahara of the popular Discovery Channel program Mythbusters will be in Saskatoon to deliver the U of S Ross and Muriel Cheriton Lecture's Ross and Muriel Cheriton Lecture. The lecture is being held as part of "What is Engineering?," a full day of activities for Grade 11 and 12 students hosted annually by the college. The Cheriton lecture is free of charge and open to the public.

Imahara will discuss all things engineering from the perspective of his work on Mythbusters and as a former animatronics engineer and modelmaker for film director George Lucas. He recently built the rude and often irreverent robot skeleton sidekick Geoff Peterson for the popular CBS late night talk show, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Imahara has a BSc in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California.
