SRO Regular Meeting Aug 10th 7:30 PM at the Salvation Army Foster and Cumberland (IL171) Norridge IL Making Stuff Smaller

The triumphs of tiny are seen all around us in the Information Age: transistors, microchips, laptops, cell phones. Now, David Pogue takes NOVA viewers to an even smaller world in "Making Stuff: Smaller," examining the latest in high-powered nano-circuits and micro-robots that may one day hold the key to saving lives.
