Keep up with the latest in science and nature by viewing an interesting PBS or Nova video each month during lunchtime such as The Cheetah Children
(Nature, 2017) “For nearly two years in the forested hills of Zimbabwe, wildlife cameraman Kim Wolhuter shadowed a wild cheetah family on foot, to reveal in intimate detail the cubs’ remarkable journey to adulthood and their mother’s dedication in raising them” or Can Alzheimer’s Be Stopped?
(Nova, 2016) “Alzheimer’s disease strikes at the core of what makes us human: our capacity to think, to love, and to remember. It is one of the greatest medical mysteries of our time. Join investigators as they gather clues and attempt to reconstruct the molecular chain of events that ultimately leads to dementia.” 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. Join us once a month at lunchtime for Science & Nature Films. Registration is required, but if you register for OLLI’s spring semester you are eligible to register for Science & Nature Films — at no extra charge — in addition to the number of study groups you already have in your membership package.
