2016 Talking Science

Posted on Sunday, November 29, 2015 by for Extra Credit, Lectures.

Contact me immediately if you wish to attend this lecture AND are available. It runs from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on the second Saturday in January. Space is limited and I must register early on Tuesday, December 1. Last year, we were only allowed 2 students because I waited until the end of the day to register. It filled up that quickly. Because demand is so high for this event, students who register and don’t show up (thus locking out other students) will have their grade lowered.
