This years theme "Why Not?" breaks the imposed barriers between Arts, Science, History, Economics, Philosophy, Engineering, Technology, and Design, and aims to starting a new wave of thought in and around campus. Simply put, this a fun yet powerful theme works on many levels of academia, challenging the myths and constraints of modern thinking. "Why Not?" permits us to ponder, dream and to ask each other to reach and speak of the potential of our respective fields of study. Most importantly "Why Not?" speaks to Drexel's potential as a leader in setting a course of action as to what's coming next.

The Antikythera Mechanism is widely considered to be one of the most important archeological artifacts ever found. The mechanism is a geared device consisting of 30 gears in a highly complex arrangement. The mechanism is known to model astronomical phenomenon with remarkable detail. In addition, it also stands witness to the extraordinary mathematical and engineering capabilities of the Ancient Greeks. The Mechanism is thought to date from between 150 and 100 BC and it precedes any other known clockwork mechanisms of similar complexity by more than a millennium. The level of engineering in the mechanism is astonishing by any standards.
