UNM-LA offers array of community classes

-A A +A

The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos Community Education will offer two classes in September focusing on the history and popularization of science in Los Alamos.
Heather McClenahan, Executive Director of the Los Alamos Historical Society, will lead a class in the “History of the Manhattan Project.” The class will cover the compelling story of the individuals, institutions and forces that came together in Los Alamos during the development of the atomic bomb.
“This is a fascinating topic and a great class. McClenahan is an expert on the subject and brings the people and events of this episode in history to life.” said Eva Artschwager, UNM-LA Community Education director.
The class is from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Sept. 12 and runs for six weeks. As a special event, the class will have its Sept. 19 meeting at the Los Alamos Historical Museum, where students will have the opportunity to meet the daughter of renowned mathematician and Manhattan Project member, John von Neumann.
Doctoral candidate Aimee Slaughter will teach a second class, “Science and the Popular Imagination,” that will trace four captivating topics in the popularization of science, including science fiction and the radium craze, and the “public enthusiasm” these movements engendered.
