About Peanut Butter Club
A WHOI community activity
Each Friday at noon in Redfield Auditorium, WHOI sponsors a free talk or video on a topical subject. Peanut Butter Club presentations are a chance to relax, chat with friends, and learn about a wide range of socially relevant subjects -- including but not limited to oceanographic information. Past Peanut Butter Club talks have covered topics like opera, research on the sun, Falmouth water quality, and the history of thermometers. Video presentations feature films on world history, travel, gardening, and nature. Many summertime presentations relate to the ocean.
