Pushing the Limits of Transformation: Read, View & Discuss Science

From January 12, 2018 05:30 until January 12, 2018 07:00
Categories: Young adult event

Our Pushing the Limits Fall Series is a free, reading, viewing and discussion series co-hosted by your librarian and a “science advocate”. Our series is designed to encourage adults in our community to see the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) that is all around them and part of their everyday lives. The second year of our four-part series we will be discussing ideas about Tradition, Transformation, Motion and Heritage.

Our Janary program focuses on the open-ended theme of "Transformation". Participants will explore the theme through the discussion of the book, How Enlightenment Changes Your Brain: The New Science of Transformation by Andrew Newberg, Mark Robert Waldman. Even if people haven’t read the book beforehand, there will be a brief summary of it.  Two short videos will also be viewed. 

We have free copies of the book to give to the first eight (8) registered participants. Vilas County Lake Conservation Specialist, Quita Sheehan, will facilitate the science end of things with the first science topic focusing on transformation. If you are not much of a reader, you are still welcome to attend. All the programs are free, but pre-registration is required. The registration deadline is one week before the event. 

Additional copies are available for check out and available in a variety of formats, including audio, digital and print copies. Space is limited and going fast, so don’t wait too long. For more information, contact the library at 479-8070.

*Pushing the Limits is a project made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
