Event Description

The second installment takes place September 13, 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at Project Y.

The Bradbury Science Museum Association, the museum's affiliated non-profit organization supporting STEM learning in northern New Mexico, presents the second "Night with a Nerd" event. Join Glen McDuff for his presentation "The Cold War, the Daily News, the Nuclear Stockpile and Bert the Turtle," a sometimes humorous look at the intricate relation between technology, politics, and public opinion during the Cold War.  Learn how nuclear policy shaped the news, and how the news shaped nuclear policy, and how technology went along for the ride.

This event is free for Bradbury Science Museum Association members. For nonmembers, the cost is $10, but you can join the BSMA online if you'd like. The talk will be followed by a reception and light refreshments, so it really is a bargain. However, everyone who wants to attend needs to register since space is limited.
