GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. -The John McConnell Math & Science Center is typically considered a place for kids to learn about science through hands-on activities. There's a new seminar series, however, geared toward adults starting up Thursday, Feb. 14."Changing Landscapes of Science: Space, The Last Frontier" - a collaboration between the Math & Science Center and the Museum of Western Colorado - will feature a space science expert each month through July. "I'm really excited about the speakers," center director Teresa Coons said. Speakers include Steven Lee from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Shuttle astronaut Mary Cleave, retired space systems engineer Allan Conrad from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, plus others."I think there's an audience, a hunger for scientific information, among the educated public who are not necessarily science-trained," Coons said.Although the talks won't be directed at scientists, they will be adult-level presentations, Coons said.High school students who are interested in science are also welcome, she added.Presentations will be held 7 p.m. at the Whitman Educational Center at Fourth and Ute. Admission is $5 for members of either the Museum of Western Colorado or the Math & Science Center, or $10 for nonmembers.For more information, visit museumofwesternco.org or mathandsciencecenter.org.
