Understanding the Air We Breathe: The Science of Air Quality
AIRMAP/UNH in collaboration with the Seacoast Science center presents a lecture series for the general public to highlight the summer of 2004 air quality campaign. The venue will be the Seacoast Science Center (SSC) at Odiorne Point. This is an excellent venue for the lecture series. Not only are there spectacular views of the New England Coast, but the Seacoast Science Center is a key outreach partner for UNH and NOAA.
The lecture hall will hold about 100 people. The goal is to make this a family event where parents can come with their children. In addition to the lecture series, we plan to organize a parallel set of events for children organized by SSC staff.
NOTE: Lectures will be general enough to appeal to a broad audience.
6:00-6:30 PM informal program - refreshments, hors d'oeurves or deserts, family picnics
