On Saturday July 18th, the Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics and the Michigan Skeptics Association will be together hosting an exciting meetup with Ann Arbor science writer, Tom Clynes, who will talk about his new book, “The Boy Who Played With Fusion.”
The book centers around a young science prodigy, Taylor Wilson, inspired by the idea of coming up with new ways to discover isotopes, sought out to build his own nuclear fusion reactor.
Author Clynes’s book also discusses the complex issue of parenting gifted children, and the nature of what is seemingly unlimited potential in exceptional young people, like Taylor Wilson.
We will be meeting in one of the private rooms at CJ’s Brewing Company, which is a small restaurant located inside Compuware Arena on Beck Road (just off of M-14, approximately 10 minutes from Ann Arbor). The hosts will be able to direct you to our meeting area, and there will be Michigan Skeptics signs as well.
There is no cost to attend but donations to cover the guest speaker’s meal and beverages, as well as general group expenses are appreciated.
