Keep up with the latest in science and nature by viewing an interesting PBS or Nova video each month during lunchtime. For example, this spring, we will show from the PBS Breakthrough Series The Robot. Check out the history of robots and learn how they are fast becoming a part of everyday life. Learn how robots were first conceptualized in ancient Rome and see how their use has evolved over the centuries, from the calculator to the Roomba. Then, take a sneak peek at what future robots will be able to do. In the BBC Blue Planet II: Green Seas, we will see that competition is fierce. In prairies of seagrass and blooms of algae animals must fight for space and food. In kelp forests, a common octopus must become the ultimate escape artist. Each film will be followed by a short discussion as time allows. We will announce the films in advance by email. Pack a light lunch to enjoy while viewing the film.
