This is the easiest meetup ever. We are presenting free films and having free food at KU's Edwards Campus. Following each film, a panel of experts will be on hand to field questions related to the films. Come watch, enjoy, and release your inner science geek on select Friday Evenings. It's like date night with your brain - but you can bring a friend too! Open to everyone.
SciFlix is a community outreach effort designed around taking the science, the theories, and the ethics in popular fiction and discussing it openly and honestly. The film – October Sky – will begin at 2:00 p.m. in the Extreme Screen at Union Station. Following the film, we play a game with prizes and our moderator will introduce our special guest expert: Alicia Cianciolo, Aerospace Engineer at NASA, who will provide her reactions to the film and insights in a Q&A session with event attendees.
Created by KU, Sci Flix’s mission is to entertain the public with movies and refreshments and then fan the sparks of creative and critical thinking into life.
Unlike most SciFlix events, this event is $5 to offset the expense of using this venue.
