SC 212 – Science and Technology in Plain English: Class presentations available.

This class is intended for both OLLI members who may feel uncomfortable with science or technology, and those well versed in the sciences.  Obscure terminology and unfamiliar concepts can sometimes intimidate, bewilder, or just plain bore OLLI members.  Presenters from the OLLI Science Committee will briefly describe a topic in science or technology that is of interest to them, explain the concept, and convey their enthusiasm in jargon-free English.
