The general public is invited to Florida Citizens for Science’s annual general membership meeting January 23, 1:30-4 p.m. It will be held at the Marshall Student Center (Conference Room 3700), University of South Florida, Tampa. FCS members, or those wanting to become members, are encouraged to show up at 1 p.m. in order to be part of our election of board members.
Physics professor Dr. Paul Cottle will be our guest speaker. He is an outspoken proponent of sound science education in Florida and writes for his own blog Bridge to Tomorrow. The subject for his talk will be “A Legislative Program for Science Education in Florida.” This event is free and should be well worth your time in light of all the dismal news about science education in our state and the financial hardships still to come for education overall.
