The first annual Brooklyn Frontiers in Science lecture sponsored by the the American Chemical Society, Brooklyn Subsection will be held at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University. The speaker is Sir Harold Kroto who won the Nobel Prize for his work on buckminsterfullerenes. The best known of these "buckyballs" consists of 60 carbon atoms arranged in the shape of a soccer ball.
Let me know if you are interested in attending. This event is free, but the organizers have asked that I tell them the approximate number of students that will attend. Extra credit is available for students who complete the public lecture assignment described at the top of this web page.
