Senior Chemists Group Meeting

« Back to calendar « Previous Event | Next Event »
Thursday November 9, 2017 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Several months ago, a few of us from the Minnesota ACS met with David Gillette, a producer at TPT/PBS, to help with suggestions for a hands-on science production on TPT that he was planning. He has recently told us that the first three episodes of "Hands-On Science" (the pilot season) will debut on television this October. All three episodes will appear on the TPT/PBS website and via Roku, Apple TV and other streaming devices around the same time. Each episode will also play on TPT 2 shortly after the premiere.

If you would like to watch the episodes, the broadcast premiere dates are:

October 15th, 7 pm, Minnesota Channel - Performers: U of M Physics Force
October 22nd, 7 pm, Minnesota Channel - Performers: U of M Energy and U
October 29th, 7 pm, Minnesota Channel - Performers: Leif Voltz, Dr. Fun and Melanie Olson

The goal is to secure funding for an extended, twelve-episode season, ideally by early 2018.

David has kindly volunteered to lead a group of Senior Chemists on a tour of the TPT studios. This will be our next meeting on Thursday, November 9th. We will meet at the TPT studios at 172 East Fourth St. in downtown St. Paul for a tour beginning at 10 am. This tour will last about an hour and then we will lunch at 11:30 am about a block away at a new restaurant called Hygge, 213 4th St., E Suite 100. The closest parking lot to the TPT studios is the ramp connected to the building, accessible off Jackson or Sibley. There is also some street/meter parking, or parking at Union Depot.

Reservations are essential since the tour is limited to 20 people!
RSVP to Lynn at lghartshorn@stthomas.edu by Monday, November 6th. We will assume that you are also coming to lunch unless you say otherwise.
