Presentation 1: Why Solar Eclipses are Totally Awesome
By Dan Falk
A total solar eclipse is one of nature’s grandest spectacles, a truly spellbinding event. In ancient times, eclipses were terrifying; today, we can predict them years (in fact centuries) in advance – but they continue to inspire awe. In this illustrated talk, science journalist and eclipse chaser Dan Falk will talk about how he got hooked on chasing the moon’s shadow, the surprising role that eclipses have played in history, and everything you need to know about the next total eclipse visible from Canada, on April 8, 2024!
Presentation 2: The N Number of Ways I've Tried to Explain Digital Photography
By Craig Fay
In this light hearted talk Craig Fay presents examples of the many ways he has attempted to explain the technology behind digital photography to his girlfriend, who still insists it is "magic." Using this experience he explores how scientific concepts can be presented in a variety of ways and why, ultimately, it's okay not to know everything. Also, his girlfriend knows he's giving this talk.
Plus trivia! And pie!
