Central Colorado Humanists: Sunday Science Program
January 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
On the first Sunday of every month, join the Central Colorado Humanists for Sunday Science.
About the Event
Come join the Central Colorado Humanists as they feature their own CCH members and friends in a variety of science-oriented talks and discussions. Sunday Science covers topics in all areas of science, hard and soft, from psychology to climate change, plant ecology to NASA space missions. It is also a great opportunity to meet fellow Humanists, make new friends, and learn about new ideas. All are welcome!
Each presentation is informative and features a science topic understandable by both scientists and non-scientists. A question and answer period will follow the talk. Light refreshments will be available, and you are invited to bring a plate of goodies to share. And, in the interest of our environment, please consider carpooling and bringing your own reusable coffee mug or beverage container.
Doors will open at 9:30am so participants can have refreshments and be seated when the program begins promptly at 10am. Admission is free and the public is welcome. Please join us!
This Month: Unmanned Aerial Systems Disrupting Technology
Unmanned Aerial Systems, aka drones, are finding many uses in industry, public safety and government. They are disrupting many industries, from agriculture to insurance to transportation to education. We’ll look at a brief history, current uses, the regulatory environment and the near future of this technology.
