Meeting Re-cap, Washington Section Meeting
​10/9  - 10/10  Heritage University.

About 25 people attended the meeting at Heritage where we were treated to some resonances between presentations.  Krishna's opening presentation placed cultural awareness in the spotlight and several presentations through the day found this touchstone relevant.  Andrew's eye-opening presentation about what can go wrong when it may appear that everything is going well, touched on center of mass and rotational concepts.  These appeared again and again through the other presentations. (There was no behind the scenes conspiring. - Honest!) Even Hilliary's polarization presentation employed circularly polarized light.  (Yes, I know this is a stretch.)

April 1-2 - PNACP Meeting.
Complex Systems / Sustainability. Portland Community College, Portland Or.
