Experience Science on a Sphere

February 21, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - March 6, 2018 @ 1:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until February 21, 2018

The SFCC community is invited to experience this new resource on campus; Science on a Sphere (SOS) in Room 803. SOS is a 6-foot-diameter sphere that displays images of planet Earth and its various systems (water, land, air, human impact). The images are beautifully presented and they invite viewers to both learn and step back in awe of the beauty and complexity of our Earth.

GLOBAL WARMING has become GLOBAL WEIRDING (Climate Change).  On Wednesday February 20 at 4:00pm and 5:00pm …. and…. Wednesday, February 27  at 4:00 pm and 5:00pm, a 30 minute presentation on Global Warming and Climate Change will be given at the Science on a Sphere (SOS) Center, Room 803 at the Santa Fe Community College.  Presenting will be Dr. Edwin Barker, retired NASA scientist and Chair of the SOS Advisory Committee, and Rev. Dr. Dave Wasserman, honorably retired Presbyterian Church and author of Riding the Blue Marble (2018).  The presentation will review the basic concepts of weather, climate, earth’s natural balancing systems, the impact of CO2’s heat-trapping blanket, and how to look for the silver buckshot of hope.

Participants will be invited to participate in a follow up World Climate Simulation Game (MIT University) modeled on a UN session negotiating CO2 reductions.  (TBA in March)

Room 803 is in the Trades and Technology section of the college.  From the eastside main parking lot, look for a green colored section of the building (Room 803).  Enter the Trades and Technology main door, turn left.
