Holiday Lecture: A Materials Wonderland: A Celebration of How Materials Science Makes Our Holidays Fun

Saturday December 12, 2020
1:00 PM

On Saturday, December 12th PCCM celebrated its annual Holiday Lecture: A Materials Wonderland: A Celebration of How Materials Science Makes Our Holidays Fun Led by Prof. Howard Stone.

The Holiday Lecture series is modeled on a famous set of presentations first given to children a century ago as part of the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures in London. The lectures highlight science in an engaging and fun forum for children age 7 and up. This event, which is free and open to the public, brings science to the community through experiments, audience participation, and highlights from current research. The lecture is a collaborative effort of the NSF MRSEC at Harvard and the NSF PCCM at Princeton.

This year’s lecture will be offered virtually via a Zoom Webinar. This annual event is free and open to the public, and all ages are welcome. Registration is required. You can register for your seat here.

Fruitcakes, Music Mountain Theater

Share:


Saturday December 12, 2020
3:00 PM

A holiday comedy with dark overtones, Fruitcakes presents a supposedly humorous look at the behind-the-scenes events at a crisis hotline on Christmas Eve. Philip runs Lifesavers, a Venice, California organization dedicated to helping the depressed and troubled. Unfortunately, Philip is a bit down himself, having learned that Lifesavers is on the verge of eviction. His staff isn't feeling particularly helpful either, with Mrs. Munchnik giving gruff, often insulting advice, and Catherine obsessing over her own unspoken love for Philip. As the holiday approaches, various weirdoes of all shapes and sizes, from to a pregnant clothing store owner to a disenchanted Santa Claus, begin dropping in, throwing the already strained office into utter chaos. Based on the 1979 French play Le Père Noël est une Ordure, and the 1994 film Mixed Nuts.

Mini Fundraiser: Tickets are $25 per attendee

An Online Staged Reading. All Angela wants is a happy Christmas–or a more exciting life–but her daughter’s left for college, her husband’s obsessed with fantasy football, the plumbing’s a mess, and her cat won’t stop peeing where he shouldn’t. When an old friend gives her some tricky advice that leads her down a path of old memories and flip phones past, Angela must decide between the warmth of nostalgia and her new, more tech-savvy world.

All pre-recorded video will be accessible any time from 7pm on December 13 until 11:59pm on December 15 Holiday Afterparty!

Join Philadelphia Drag Queen Jenny Henny and Board Member Brian Joyce immediately after the video screening of Christmas 2.0 for laughter and cheer as we auction off roles in classic holiday stories. You can play Cindy Lou Hoo from “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” – or better yet, bid to make a friend do it!
