FRED Talks at FRCC Campus in Longmont Consider Some of Life’s Big Questions

“What is Life?” and a companion question, “What Questions are Worth Asking?” are two of the topics Front Range Community College faculty and students will consider in April’s FRED Talks.

FRED Talks owe their genesis to TED Talks, which bill themselves as “ideas worth spreading.” TED Talks started in 1984 at a conference for Technology, Entertainment, and Design. FRED Talks are at Front Range and about EDucation. Tracy Halward of FRCC’s biology faculty, is the organizer of FRED Talks.

FRED Talks are scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. the first and third Tuesday of the month at the Boulder County Campus, 2121 Miller Drive, Longmont. Admission is free. The April schedule:

April 1 in the Community Room of the Classroom Building: The Nicotine in Your Tobacco – The Good, The Bad, pand The Ugly, with Heidi O’Neil, biology faculty; What is Life?, with Catlyn Keenan, philosophy faculty and Tracy Halward, biology faculty; What Questions Are Worth Asking?, with Michael Barber, English faculty; and Women in Technology, with student Nishtha Oberai and Jim Vernon, business faculty.
