Online Education and Local Opportunities

Can't get enough advocacy? Neither can we. Here's our hot sheet on upcoming science education, advocacy events and opportunities. And, as a thank-you to our regular readers, we've highlighted events in some of our top readership cities!

Science Education - Online
Want to keep learning but a bit short on tuition? There are lots of places to take the same classes as students at Harvard, MIT, the London School of Economics, Berkeley, Yale, and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (among many others). And for the astronomically inclined, check out these 50 open course opportunities.

Los Angeles, California
Support biomedical research next Wednesday, April 22 at this Pro-Test in support of local animal researchers.

Minneapolis, Minnesota
There's a lot going on in the Twin Cities for Earth Day this weekend.

New York, New York

Tonight at 6pm at the New York Academy of Sciences there's a lecture on agriculture in urban centers. It's also available online for those outside the area (or stuck in Friday night traffic!). And this weekend, venture out to Bodies, The Exhibition.

Washington DC Metro area
Head to the Mall this weekend (April 18-20) to see the National Sustainable Design Expo. It's a great event with some very cool homes.

We'll have lots more local opportunities as well as a series on the health implications of climate change in celebration of Earth Day next week.

Have a great weekend and don't forget to get out and advocate!
