May 15: Science Café at Arizona Science Center. Presented by the Center for Nanotechnology in Society at Arizona State University. 5:30-6:30 p.m. FREE.
Science Cafés are informal discussions that bring together members of the community and university scientists to discuss how science and technology can change the future. This week’s topic: To Drink or Not to Drink: What Should We Do to Have Good Tasting, Safe and Sustainable Water in the Future? GUESTS: Dr. Dave White, Associate Professor, School of Community Resources and Development,
State University. Troy Benn, PhD Candidate, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering, Arizona State University. This cafe will explore the complex challenges to obtaining good tasting, safe AND sustainable water: Can all three goals be obtained? Are they equally important? Do different stakeholders have different priorities? For example, perhaps "safe water" is equally important to politicians and academic researchers, but how does each constituency view "sustainability"? How do we reconcile differences? Moreover, are there technologies related to good-tasting, safe and sustainable water that could pose ethical or social dilemmas? Are there other unintended consequences that are difficult to foresee?

May 24: LEGO® Castle Adventure
, presented locally by J.P. Morgan and Chase, will open at Arizona Science Center on May 24th. Free with general admission. Builders of all ages are invited to explore, build and play in our newest traveling exhibition – LEGO® Castle Adventure! In this exhibit kids and their families are transported to a LEGO kingdom where they too can become master castle builders, using one of the greatest building materials of all time – LEGO bricks.
