Hello CSC members!
The Computer Science Club along with the Physics Undergraduate Club will be hosting "Feynman Nights". We will be showing recordings of lectures that the physicist Richard Feynman gave at Cornell in 1964. They can be viewed online at the following address: http://research.microsoft.com/apps/tools/tuva/
- There will be snacks/refreshments (this week will be popcorn, chips, pop... maybe pizza, who knows! We will take suggestions for future dates if people give them.) - Admission is free (of course)! - Open to everyone, and accessible to everyone! (They are lectures accessible to the general public.) - There will be 7 happening weekly on Wednesdays at 7-8PM. You don't have to attend them all! (but you should!) - PHYS 150. That is the physics building, in one of the theatre rooms.
NOTE: Yes, the first one is this Wednesday. i.e. TODAY. It is ok to come to the second if you miss the first. Bonus marks (there are no marks) for coming to the first, though.
Try to come early to get a seat! Bring your friends, meet new people and generally be awesome.
