The Cannon Valley Carleton Club invites you to

The Science of Getting Around Northfield
(while staying Alive!) with Will Schroeer '87

Tuesday, October 8, 2019
6:30 p.m.

Northfield, MN 55057

Will Schroeer '87 will discuss how various claims are used in arguments about what's "safe" in transportation designs (wide streets or narrow? what is the best crosswalk design?), and describe what we currently know, using examples from Northfield. Schroeer is the Executive Director of East Metro Strong, a public-private partnership of businesses, cities and counties working together to bring more and better transit investment to the East Metro and catalyze job growth and economic development opportunities.

C.O.W.S. (Conversations on the Wonders of Science) is a monthly science café. Its goal is to engage with the public to increase scientific literacy and spread excitement about new scientific discoveries. Each month, C.O.W.S invites a local scientist to give a short, engaging talk (10-15 minutes) that is intended to spark lively discussion, so we leave plenty of time for questions and conversation (30-40 minutes). Our topics range across all scientific disciplines, from ecology to psychology to astronomy and chemistry. We hope to create an informal, casual atmosphere that encourages all participants to feel comfortable asking questions or volunteering ideas. For more information, visit the C.O.W.S website.

C.O.W.S. is organized by Rika Anderson '06, Sarah Meerts, and Laura Listenberger. Everyone is welcome. Come join us to eat, drink, and talk about the wonders of science!
