New Home at tcc
Boxes are unpacked and phones are working, so we are in business! Members are finding the new location easy to navigate thanks to the helpful guards in the parking lots.
Dr. David Wright from TCC taught our first program in the planetarium. He jumped on a pogo stick and lay on a bed of nails just to prove that physics is fun. Members joined in the demonstration pulling a tablecloth from under dishes and also resting on the bed of nails. We blew up Saturn in the planetarium show.
Robert Torgler presented our first program in the Pungo building. The auditorium is spacious and well-suited for our lectures. Mr. Torgler's topic was "Saratoga--The Battle that Changed the World." We learned that the American Revolution might have been quite short and we could have remained a British colony.
Check the schedule of classes in the Spring 2019 session and join your friends at the Virginia Beach campus of Tidewater Community College. Remember that most but not all classes will be in the Pungo Building (F). Our business office is in the Princess Anne Building (A), which is the one near the flags and dolphin sculpture.
