Dear DMP Membership,

If you are at the March Meeting, we suggest you consider the following for Thursday evening before your trip home: 

An Aperture into Science Advocacy

Hosted by the APS Office of Public Affairs

An Aperture into Science Advocacy will bring bring Mr. Brandon Fibbs, a leading producer of science television shows and most recently, part of the team that rebooted "Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey" and Dr. John Durant, founder of the Cambridge Science Festival and MIT Museum Director and Adjunct Professor in the Science, Technology & Society Program to moderate audience discussion of films such as "The Imitation Game," "The Story of Louis Pasteur," "2001: A Space Odyssey," and "Jobs." 

An Aperture into Science Advocacy

Thursday, March 5, 2015, 5:30 p.m.
The Grand Hyatt San Antonio, Presidio Room
Hors d'oeuvres, beer, and wine will be served during the screening and discussion.

Join us as we explore how popular films with science-based plots can help physicists communicate the value of science to members of Congress, and the public, in a compelling and individual way.
Plan to attend our event prior to flying home or heading out for your last evening of the APS March Meeting. You'll be glad you did! Download the invitation »
