This is a first-shot thing for the Meetup group. I'm not suggesting a date, or time or place. It follows Mikail's suggestion, and goes with it Meetup-style. Mikhail, I give you the floor on what it will cover, and how you'd like to manage it! You idea of maybe watching a bunch of the Khan Academy lectures at a coffee shop is a great one. Choose you day and time and location, and run with it!
Physics and Astronomy lectures, events, and discussions!
We find things that are happening all over New York City which relate to it and get going to them!
We are sponsored and supported by the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York.
Our primary meetup events are at the Columbia University public talks, the Kaufmann Lectures given by the AAA, stargazing events by the AAA and public events at the American Museum of Natural History.
We'll also go do special events around the neighborhood and all over.
Meetup members are encouraged to suggest events. Furthermore you are encouraged to join the AAA so that they can help the Club grow. The AAA needs energetic and interesting folks to suggest to the Board about topics they find interesting and for classes that need to be taught.
