Words? Or equations? John Henshaw loves ‘em both! He’s an engineer, professor, and writer – but not necessarily in that order. A TU professor since 1990, he currently serves as Department Chair of Mechanical Engineering. Stints in the petroleum and nuclear power industries honed his technical chops before he succumbed to the siren call of academe.
An expert on metals and plastics and on the engineering design process, he amuses himself by writing books on technical subjects – but for a general audience. John and boyhood buddy Jerry McCoy have been ruminating on all things scientific for longer than either of them can remember. Science Matters is their latest crazy scheme.
A bicycle commuter and avid tennis player, John and wife Mia stay busy keeping up with the doings of three lovely daughters and one granddaughter.
“Any sufficiently advanced technology,” as Arthur C. Clarke once said, “Is indistinguishable from magic.” But the real magic in the world of science and technology comes from understanding it. Join University of Tulsa professors Jerry McCoy and John Henshaw on a magical mystery tour of scientific knowledge. They’ll entertain you and raise your science IQ all at the same time. Ready? Earbuds in; amazement on; listen.
