Keep up with the latest in science and nature by viewing an interesting PBS or Nova video each month during lunchtime. For example, this fall we will show from the Nature TV channel The Egg: Life’s Perfect Invention.
The egg is perhaps nature’s most perfect life support system. These remarkable structures nurture new life. They are strong enough to withstand the full weight of an incubating parent and weak enough for a hatchling to break free. And why lay an egg at all? In another example, we will watch from PBS Breakthrough: The Airplane.
We will take to the sky with those who inspired the Wright brothers to invent the first successful airplane. From Leonardo da Vinci’s “flying machines” to the modern commercial plane, without these inventions we might never have left the ground. Each film will be followed by a short discussion. We will announce the films in advance by email. Pack a light lunch to enjoy while viewing the film. Keep up with the latest in science and nature by viewing an interesting PBS or Nova video.
