Bankhead Theater - Livermore
Science on Saturdays.
Science on Saturday (SOS) is a series of science lectures targeted at middle and high school students. Each topic highlights cutting-edge science occurring at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The talks are presented by leading LLNL science researchers supported by master high school science teachers. Admission is free of charge. Seating is on a first come basis. Seats may not be reserved in advance.
Students receive a "Student Notes" worksheet to record key information from the talk. The worksheet will be marked with the official SOS stamp at the end of the presentation. Many teachers use the worksheet to award "extra credit." Students should check with their teacher in advance to determine if they will receive credit for attending SOS.
The presentation photographed here is called "It's a Breeze: Using the
Wind to Power Our Future", and was presented on February 28, 2009.
