CAM Fall Meeting – Sunday, October 16th, College of the Holy Cross

This year’s Fall Meeting will be held at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester MA on Sunday, October 16th, from 10 am until 3 pm.  Directions to Hogan Center Suite B can be found by clicking on this link.

Join us as we explore the connections between the Classics and the sciences both ancient and modern, with an aim of providing useful ideas for your classroom!  Speakers include Diane Anderson (UMASS Boston – Comprehensible Astronomy), Neel Smith (Holy Cross – Data Science in Your Beginning Latin Class), Aaron Seider (Holy Cross – Imagining the Universe and Its Origins in Greco-Roman Antiquity), and Anthony Tuck (UMASS Amherst - Practical Pasts: Small Scale Approaches to Ancient Technologies).

The afternoon will feature an active Latin reading of a STEM-related text (Galileo’s Sidereus Nuncius), and there will also be opportunities for participants to discuss ideas and strategies for adding what they’ve learned to their own classrooms.

Lunch is provided!  Cost is $22 for members and $32 for non-members (includes 2016-17 membership). Download the  cam-flyer-fall-meeting (includes registration form) and RSVP by October 6th.
