Head back to school with “The Science of Everyday Things”, a free, fun and informative learning series for grown-ups (no homework or grading, guaranteed!). The classes will be led by Kris Moroski, a Glenelm resident who’s been teaching high school science for the past 15 years. Kris loves to answer questions and share his understanding of science.

[Date updated] Wednesday, November 28: All About Computers
This talk is all about computers — what memory is, what do they compute, how they started, how did we get to this point, and where are they headed!
