“SCIENCE MADE PUBLIC” LECTURE SERIES:
This summer “Science Made Public” celebrates the deep submergence vehicle Alvin’s 50th year in operation. On Tuesday, July 22, at 3:00 p.m., in Redfield Auditorium, the WHOI Ocean Science Exhibit Center will host a presentation by Dudley Foster, a retired Alvin pilot, titled “50+ Years of Ocean Exploration.” During the last 50 years, Alvin has made numerous undersea discoveries and been involved in countless observations, sample collections, and deployment and recovery of experiments. During those years, Alvin has been upgraded with the latest in computer hardware, imaging systems, and deep sea instrumentation, so it continues to be “state-of-the-art.” Hear from this long-time Alvin pilot about the major milestones in Alvins’ history and some of its adventures between 1972-2006. The “Science Made Public” talks are free and open to the public. Redfield Auditorium is located at 45 Water Street in Woods Hole. For more information, call (508) 289-2700 or visit http://www.whoi.edu/ScienceMadePublic/.

The library continues its series of dance lectures this summer. The next, and final, presentation will be held on July 23 at 7:30 p.m., and will feature noted art and dance critic Iris Fanger speaking about the history of the New York City Ballet, focusing on the Balanchine years. She will introduce clips of films of Balanchine’s productions, especially ballets that she has described earlier in the month. This event is free and open to the public. On Saturday, July 26, there will be a workshop on making bowls out of strips of paper. The library is looking for inventive and beautiful pieces. There will be a special category for children’s entries. All the works will be displayed in the library from July 21 - 31 and will be auctioned off on July 31 at a festive party. Hear and meet award-winning Dan Isenberg, Woods Hole School graduate-turned-Harvard professor, on Wednesday, July 28, 7:30 p.m., at the library. He will focus his talk on his recently published book “Worthless, Impossible and Stupid: How Contrarian Entrepreneurs Create and Capture Extraordinary Value” (Harvard Business Review Press 2013). “Worthless, Impossible and Stupid” is a unique global foray into the world of unusual entrepreneurs, from the chicken designer in Delhi to the billion dollar retailer in Slovenia, and from the video pill developer in Israel to the wind turbine blade maker in Brazil.

“SCIENCE MADE PUBLIC” LECTURE SERIES:
This summer “Science Made Public” celebrates the deep submergence vehicle Alvin’s 50th year in operation. On Tuesday, July 29, at 3:00 p.m., the WHOI Ocean Science Exhibit Center will host a presentation by marine chemist Jill McDermott, titled “Exploring Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vents in Alvin.” The circulation of seawater-derived fluids through seafloor hydrothermal vents releases abundant chemical energy. This discovery has expanded our understanding of the limits and constraints on life in extreme environments. Hear from this MIT-WHOI Joint Program student about her experience diving in Alvin to investigate a volcanic eruption, and learn how deep-sea research on Earth can inform the search for life, and the compounds that support life, elsewhere in our solar system. The “Science Made Public” talks are free and open to the public. Redfield Auditorium is located at 45 Water Street in Woods Hole. For more information, call (508) 289-2700 or visit http://www.whoi.edu/ScienceMadePublic/.
