  • Bradbury Science Museum, 1350 Central Ave, Los Alamos, NM 87544, USA

Event Description

Come by to learn about software and measurement.

Software surrounds us

Join Sandy Frost, with the Lab's Technology Services and Solutions group, as she talks about how software is integral to our lives including coding (plugged and unplugged), its history, the Internet of things, accessibility and even has a home automation demonstration using Amazon Echo.

Measuring with metric

Even though the United States signed the Treaty of the Meter in 1875, we continue to use two sets of measurement units side by side, leading to wasted time and medical errors—among other issues. Stop by and learn from Linda Anderman, with the Lab's Bradbury Science Museum, about the advantages of the metric system. There are scales both old and new to play with and an opportunity to consider if our current path really "measures up."
