For Immediate Release

Registration is now being accepted for a workshop entitled
“Visioning the Future: When Science Fiction Becomes Reality,” presented by the University of Hawai`i at Hilo College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS).

Dr. Jon-Pierre Michaud, associate professor of Chemistry and Dr. Richard Crowe, professor of Astronomy will take students on a tour of how wonders of science fiction have become science fact. The short, lively workshop will raise greater awareness of how such ideas can affect the world, create a better understanding of how the seeds of influence get planted to bloom into something tangible and practical, and improve our ability to see our own society from a different perspective. Participants are encouraged to bring their favorite stories and ideas from the worlds of science fiction and fantasy to share with the class.

The workshop will be conducted over two sessions on October 13th and 15th from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in Marine Science Building Room 103. The cost is $30 and space is limited. For more information and to register, please
