Watch Cool Science Stuff! (WCSS) - September 2013

Back after a summer hiatus!

WHAT?
The idea is to get together and watch some great/interesting science/skeptical stuff (TV series, movies, etc.) This is intended to be a very casual meetup...drop by, hang out, discuss after, and then maybe go out grab a bite/drink later.

We will watch episodes/videos from the list below. If you have some stuff you'd like to share (from below list), please feel free to bring it!
1) Nova (TV series, 1974-present)
2) Nova ScienceNOW (TV series, 2005-present)
3) TED Talks

FORMAT
After a few talks/episodes, depending on the length (10-60 minutes in length), we'll take a short break for discussion/Q&A.

SNACKS/DRINKS
You're encouraged to bring snacks as long as you don't make a mess and clean up after yourself. You can also bring a non-alcoholic beverage of your choice, as long you promise not to spill it!

TRANSPORTATION/PARKING
The library has a small parking lot and there's street parking. It's also pretty close to the Logan Square and California Blue Line stops, and easily accessible via the 56 Milwaukee bus.

HANGOUT AFTER
Lastly, for bonus points, if you know a good spot for a big group to hang out (eat, drink, talk) after 5pm in the area, please comment below. The one with most "likes" wins!

    Hi folks! Just so you know, this month's WCSS theme is Energy. We'll watch one Nova episode about clean energy, and two TED Talks about renewable energy and energy usage. Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow! We have lots of space, so feel free to bring a friend (or a few) along. :-)
