Join us for the last meeting of the semester! We will be having a Thanksgiving-themed potluck. To help with exams, there will also be some STEM tutors on hand to answer your questions and free scantrons will be given out. If you can’t bring food, you’re still invited. However, if you can bring a savory dish or dessert to share with everyone – we would really appreciate it! Either way, RSVP at the following link:
Come by the Science Club meeting this afternoon to learn about the chemistry of soap and to make your own bar! Everyone is welcome.

Beyond Your Genes: Biology of Addiction
The human brain is simply amazing. Understanding how the 86 billion neurons work in our brain is not simple. Those neurons control your body, your actions, and your memories by communicating with one another. In the past decade or so, a new master regulator of neuronal communication has been discovered. Professor Wood will discuss the role of this master regulator in the young brain, how it becomes impaired in the aging brain, and how it is hijacked by drugs of abuse in the addicted brain. He will also discuss how knowledge of this master regulator is leading to the development of new therapeutics for brain disorders.
