« back to classes page
ClassGraphic 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 Killer Floods (Nova):“Scientists are discovering traces of ancient floods on a scale that dwarfs even the most severe flood disasters of recent times. What triggered these cataclysmic floods, and could they strike again? In the Channeled Scablands of Washington State, the level prairie gives way to bizarre, gargantuan rock formations: house-sized boulders seemingly dropped from the sky, a cliff carved by a waterfall twice the height of Niagara, and potholes large enough to swallow cars.” Another film is Rise of the Robots (Nova) “How capable are robots, really? How close are we to a future where humanoid robots are part of our everyday lives? And what will the future look like with robots that can do a human’s job?” 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. Registration is required, but if you register for OLLI's fall semester you are eligible to register for Noontime Science & Nature Films at no extra charge.
