BONUS GROUP: Noontime Science & Nature Films

ID : 879   
« back to classes page
CourseGraphic Keep up with the latest in science and nature by viewing an interesting PBS or Nova video each month during lunchtime. This spring we will show from Nature: "Owl Power - What actually makes owls so special? Bird trainers Lloyd and Rose Buck and their very special family of owls provide a rare opportunity to learn more about these unique birds. Using the latest technology, we can take a brand new look at owls in more detail than ever before. The real stories behind how they hunt, how their vision and hearing works, and how they fly so silently are influencing 21st century technology and design." We will show from Nova: “Prediction by the Numbers - Predictions underlie nearly every aspect of our lives. With the explosion of digital technology, the internet, and big data, the science of forecasting is flourishing. But why do some predictions succeed spectacularly while others fail abysmally? And how can we find meaningful patterns amidst chaos and uncertainty?” Films 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. Registration is required, but if you register for OLLI’s spring semester you are eligible to register for Noontime Science & Nature Films at no extra charge.
