PAS General Monthly Meeting with Guest Speaker - Tune in Remotely
Calendar: PAS Public Event Calendar
Event Posted By: Terri Finch  
04-02-2020 07:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Apr 3 update: This meeting was a success. Zoom proved to be very good in allowing the attendees to enjoy the presentation. A few rules need to be adhered to, such as muting your computer so the Guest Speaker is the only one that will be heard during his talk, but other than that, this plan worked well. PAS is considering a remote meeting for the May 7th PAS Meeting. Please watch the announcement of how to access the meeting at the May 7th PAS Meeting calendar link.

This physical meeting is cancelled.
However, PAS is considering a remote electronic presentation.
Watch here for updates.

Directions on how to set up Zoom on your computer or Cell phone are here:

This first PAS by Zoom meeting we are limiting access to PAS Members & their guests. Please adhere to these rules when at the meeting:

Tonight's meeting features: Eric Steinberg
Title: “The Physics of Chernobyl: what actually happened in there and how they managed to do it”
Data about this meeting: ...

The Physics of Chernobyl
What happened in there and how does a reactor blow itself to kingdom-come?
There has been a lot of interest lately in this disaster with a good deal of glossed-over science along with some questionable theories about what went wrong and who was to blame. Join presenter Eric Steinberg at the PAS meeting on Thursday, April 2nd for a more in-depth and fascinating look at the system, the science, the accident chain and some of the latest surprising findings about the worst nuclear accident in history. It’s what you won’t see on HBO.

PAS Meetings are on the First Thursday of each month, Sept to May, unless otherwise noted. The January Meeting isn't on the first Thursday because PVCC is closed for the holidays and doesn't reopen until 2 weeks into the new year. And PAS doesn't hold Summer General Meetings at PVCC because the campus is closed or not available during the summer months – June, July & August.

Bring a Friend!!! Bring the whole family! EVERYONE WELCOME![/b]

Here's the campus map.

Paradise Valley Comm. College

Meeting gathers at 7pm for Socializing, setting up the Guest Speaker, taking care of the Raffles, gathering Announcements, & snacking.

7:30 Meeting begins with a few brief announcements and then
we turn it over to the Guest Speaker. When the guest speaker concludes, there may be the raffle drawing & any announcements that didn't get covered prior to the start of the Guest Speaker's presentation.

Most meetings have snacks and drinks available. Donations are accepted, but not required. Bring a snack to share or donate to the snack fund. The snack fund sometimes provides the case of water each month and the pizza for the Annual Awards Ceremony & pizza party in April.

The group sometimes goes to Village Inn at Bell & 40th Street - 4040 East Bell Road, Phoenix, AZ 85032 for evening snacks after the meetings. Please see the President or Vice President at the meeting to find out if there will be a a group trip to Village Inn after the meeting.
