SLAC Announces Public Lectures

By Emily Ball

Ever have trouble describing what you do at SLAC to your family and friends? Let the SLAC Public Lecture Series help!

This recurring lecture program, aimed at the local non-scientific community, will kick off with "All About SLAC: What Goes on in the World’s Longest Building" given by SLAC Communications Director Neil Calder, on February 24 at 7:30 p.m.

Future talks will be given by Herman Winick (SSRL), Steve Sekula (BABAR), Graham George (SSRL), and Joachim Stöhr (KIPAC). Topics will range from Ma.er and Anti-Matter to Particle Astrophysics to Synchrotron Radiation, and all will be presented in a fun, non-technical format to make SLAC science concepts accessible to local residents from all walks of life.

The lecture series will occur the last Tuesday of every other month at 7: 30 p.m. These one-hour talks will be followed by refreshments, and attendees can chat with scientists who will be on hand to answer questions. Invite your family and friends! See more information at: http://www.slac.stanford.edu/lectures
