Dearest poindexter, please remove your nose from that book and do some intellectual exploring this April. Here are five must-attend lectures that'll get your neurons firing.

Pascal Cotte @ Arizona Science Center
In conjunction with the Arizona Science Center's ongoing exhibit "Da Vinci - The Genius," French engineer Pascal Cotte will discuss his invention, the 240-megapixel Multi-spectral Imaging Camera, which he created in his efforts to preserve the Mona Lisa. The device allowed Cotte to scan the famed painting and reveal its many layers, as well as 25 discoveries included in the exhibit, on view through June 9.

For Ignite Phoenix, there are always tickets that open up when someone can't make it, and we are planning to livestream the event on our website (if the Technology Gods are kind to us this time).
