In honor of National Chemistry Week, the Brooklyn Subsection of the New York Local Section of the American Chemical Society will be hosting a free public lecture. The 2012 Brooklyn Frontiers in Public Science Lecture will be presented by a pioneer in nanotechnology and materials science — Prof. George M. Whitesides of Harvard University. This lecture will be held in the Pfizer Auditorium in the Bern Dibner Library at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University in Brooklyn on Thursday, October 25, 2012 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM.
Midwood has always showed our support for this lecture series by sending a large number of students. Please register at the NYACS website if you are interested in attending. Get there a bit early if possible. Light refreshments have traditionally been served beforehand. Single use MetroCards will be made available for any student who needs one. One point of extra credit will be awarded to all students who attend and complete this assignment. Official attendance is taken by group photo at the end of the event. Place your completed (typed) assignment in my mailbox in the Research Room at any time during the school day on Friday, October 26.
