Science and the City

Posted on May 14, 2006  Comments (0)

Science and the City, from the New York Academy of Sciences, serves to show how much all of us outside of New York City miss, but, also offers value to those away from NYC. Those of you lucky enough to be in New York City can find an amazing array of science related activities. For example this week you could choose from:

  • Making Chinese Medicine Modern at Columbia University Medical Center
  • Squishy Gel Phases as Templates for Nanostructured Materials at the City College of New York
  • The Beginner’s Guide to Winning the Nobel Prize at the New York Academy of Sciences
  • This Just In: The Latest News from the Universe at the American Museum of Natural History
  • Condensed-Matter Physics & Materials Science Seminar

Those are less than 10% of the listings included on the Science and the City calendar for this week.

For those of us outside NYC their site does offer a great deal of useful information including: Science and the City podcasts featuring interviews, conversations, and lectures by noted scientists and authors. Recent additions include: Father of String Theory Muses on the Megaverse by Leonard Susskind and In Search of Memory by Eric Kandel.

Great stuff for those in NYC, and elsewhere.
