We meet in Branford, CT about once every 4-6 weeks, and topics discussed range from physical sciences, to life sciences and social sciences. A knowledge of the topic being discussed is not required, nor is there any membership requirement or age restriction.
Perhaps the only requirement is curiosity and a thirst for knowledge! Science and technology are integral to every aspect of life - history, geography, humanities, music - everything.
Professor Nilay Hazari
Department of Chemistry,
Date: June 4, 2016
Time: 3 p.m.
Venue: James Blackstone Memorial Library, Branford, CT
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the primary greenhouse gas emitted through human activities. In 2014, CO2 accounted for about 80.9% of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions from human activities, dramatically affecting the climate. Can we harness some of this CO2 and put it to good use? Professor Hazari will discuss research from his lab. where this CO2 is being used to develop valuable materials.

What a wonderful resource you are providing to the global community - I don't live in CT but have been following your website and activities for the last year. Please keep up this effort.
This most recent presentation (3/20/2010) is the second lecture I've attended. I will say that the Branford library seems like the better choice in sheer terms of size for accommodating a crowd. Both lectures were wonderful, and I look especially forward to the discussion on dark matter/energy.
I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend the lecture at Blackstone Library given by Amanda Folsom. I am sharing what I learned there with my Wallingford Adult Education students.
Keep the good work going. I agree, you have created a CT treasure. And its free!!!! Thank you.
We are fortunate to have such amazing scientists in New Haven & from Yale University!
