Some of our upcoming programs

A special class in celebration of the 2014 FIFA World Cup! 
75 - The Science of Soccer    
As the FIFA World Cup excites audiences around the world, OASIS is planning a class which will explore the science behind the most popular game in the world. Why does a ball bounce? Why does it curve in flight? How far can a ball be kicked? Just kicking a ball relates to the physics of motion and friction, and even aerodynamics. These and other aspects of what has been called “the beautiful game” will be explained without delving into complex mathematics. A presentation by John M. Taylor, author of The Science of Soccer, published by UNM Press.
Monday, August 18, 1-2:30pm at OASIS

38 - The Cold War: How the Americans & the French Fell In & Out of Love
Dividing his time between Placitas and a tiny village in Central France, Steve Bassett has a unique perspective on how our lives today have been shaped by the Cold War. An award-winning reporter and writer, his latest book is Golden Ghetto: How the Americans and French Fell in Love During the Cold War. In this class, he will explore basic human instincts as expressed by the occupied (French) and occupiers (Americans). Hundreds of hours of interviews stitch together a collective memoir as relevant today as they were 50 years ago.
Thursday, August 14, 10:30am-12pm at OASIS
