The Louis Maslow STEM School at Wyoming Seminary will present a lecture titled “STEM in the Ancient World” on Saturday, Jan. 21 at 7:00 p. m. in the Stettler Learning Resources Center, North Sprague Avenue, Kingston. The lecture is free and open to the public.
The lecture will be presented by Justin Naylor, a former Wyoming Seminary Upper School mathematics and Latin teacher. Currently he is the owner and operator of Old Tioga Farm, a community-supported farm and farm-to-table restaurant in Stillwater.
In his talk, Naylor will discuss the tendency for many people to think of science as progress, and his belief that there are important reasons to study and think about the history of science and the scientific thinking of those who have gone before. He will describe several important figures from ancient Greece and Rome whose ideas are still relevant today.
This lecture is part of a series presented by the Louis Maslow STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) School at Wyoming Seminary. The lectures are intended to show the integration and application of science, technology, engineering and mathematics across disciplines and within society.
