     1= Public Outreach Lecture & Film Series / Summer 2010 = 
     3This is a lecture series put on for the benefit of the public.  Each lecture lasts approximately 30 minutes and is accompanied by 1.5 hours of star-gazing on the roof if the weather cooperates.  Talks are targeted at the astronomical-education level of a layperson (oftentimes children are in attendance).  Talks typically meet in Pupin 301; directions will be provided around the observatory to the lecture on each given night.   
     5In addition, we've included 4 science fiction film screenings and talks throughout the summer.  Each film will be introduced by a scientist-volunteer, shown in its entirety, and then followed with a short lecture on the relevant science in the film.  Afterward, we open the session into a discussion and provide telescope viewing either in front of Pupin or on College Walk if the weather is cooperative.  For more information, go to the [wiki:Outreach Wiki Outreach webpage] or the [ Public Outreach webpage].   
     7If you're interested in giving an outreach lecture in a coming semester, please contact the current Outreach Director.
