How the Vietnam War Impacted Star Wars
The Vietnam War ended in 1975 and would go on to change the culture of the United States and the rest of the world drastically. Star Wars debuted in 1977 as George Lucas's masterpiece. Like the rest of Hollywood at the time, George Lucas had changed his views and ideals as well, implementing them into the core ideas of what would become the Skywalker Saga. Learn all about these details with Josh Taylor of Modern Mouse podcast and!

Why Geography Matters in the 21st Century
From using maps on your smartphone for day to day navigation, to how your breakfast food was delivered to your grocery store, how your bus was routed, to how your city is planned for a sustainable future and beyond, geography is more relevant than ever before. Join geographer Joseph Kerski on a journey into why geography and Geotechnologies affect our everyday lives and what you can do to ensure that it is taught and used in schools and society. 

Plastics help make the modern world possible. These ubiquitous materials are used in our clothing, electronics, vehicles, and even implanted in our bodies. Come hear material scientist, Nolan Wilson, explain what makes plastics so great, and how we can engineer a new generation of plastics for a more sustainable economy.

As always, a huge thanks to our photography partners From the Hip Photo, our crafty friends at The Craft Box, and the best venue in Denver, The Bug Theatre!
