Active Minds Educational Series

Thurs., August 10, 10 am

For those who live in areas at risk of wildfires, few things are more frightening. Join Active Minds as we examine fire-fighting, forest policy, weather and the impact of swaths of dead trees killed by the pine beetle infestation. We’ll also look at the role of fire in nature and how areas recover from devastating burns.


The Nobel Prize
Thurs., Sept. 14, 10 am

Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel, the inventor of dynamite, established the Nobel Prize in his will in 1895. For over a century the prize has stood for extraordinary accomplishment in a variety of fields throughout the world. Join Active Minds as we trace the history of the Nobel Prize, highlighting notable laureates, notable omissions, and a controversy here and there. We will also take a look at recent and possible future winners and the political impact the prize can have on the world.

Nobel Prize

Putin’s Russia
Thurs., Oct. 26, 9:30 am

Having influenced the country far beyond the term of his first official presidency and now having returned to the role and consolidated his power, Vladimir Putin’s leadership of Russia suggests a return to an authoritarianism that, for some, feels similar to the days of Soviet control and the Czars of old. Join Active Minds as we examine the story of Russia under the influence of Vladimir Putin.
