Date(s) - April 26, 2020
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

For those curious folks interested in a deeper and broader exploration of science, technology, culture, and our changing world, UU Casper hosts “Lunch With TED” the last Sunday of each month at noon, and now held online. We will watch a TED Talk video and participate in a facilitated discussion.  This month we’ll view “How bumble bees inspired a network of tiny museums,” by Amanda Schochet. Cindy Wright will facilitate this online discussion.

“Sometimes, small things make a huge impact. After studying how bees in urban environments can survive by navigating small land patches, ecologist Amanda Schochet was inspired to build MICRO, a network of portable science museums the size of vending machines. Learn how these tiny museums are being deployed in libraries, community centers, transit hubs and elsewhere to increase public access to science.”
