Woods Hole lecture series explores range of scientific topics
Date:5/15/2009

WASHINGTON The National Academies announced today this summer's lineup of lectures called Distinctive Voices@The Jonsson Center. The public events in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, feature diverse subjects for those curious about science, technology, and medicine. This year, the program will explore science and technology's role in diplomacy, space exploration, climate change, globalization, aging, and creativity. Award-winning scientists and engineers -- many of whom are members of the Academies -- will speak about recent findings and research developments.

To give attendees the chance to engage in stimulating conversations sparked by the presentations, a reception follows each event. The events are free and open to the public. For more details, visit www.voicesatjonsson.org. A list of the summer events follows.
