Join us on November 14th for “What’s So Interesting About Water?”

From outer space to beneath our streets, we live with water. What would life be without it? Considering water is, in some ways, considering what it is to be alive. This event will be held on Thursday, November 14th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. A wine-and-cheese reception will start things off before the presentation.

Alan Windle has been considering this question in depth. Alan is a software engineer with a BA in Philosophy from Franklin and Marshall and a MS in Computer Science from Villanova. He brings both sides of his intellect to studying the question of what IS so interesting about water.

As a volunteer and tour guide at the Water Works he continues to explore the mysteries of H2O. As a climate change activist, he has a deep commitment to education around environmental issues and to seeking solutions for the challenges facing us. Alan’s presentation will take us from the molecular to the monumental, and from the stars to the human to the Schuylkill.

Join us to learn, think and explore as we enter the amazing world of water!
Please RSVP by Wednesday, November 13 by calling 215-685-0723 or by email at fwwicinfo@gmail.com.
