During the fall and winter, the University of Michigan Physics Department hosts a series of multimedia presentations called Saturday Morning Physics. These presentations are aimed at the general public. Generally you can find several Lowbrows in attendance. (The Lowbrows are an amateur astronomy club based in Ann Arbor).
On April 13, 2002 Professor Brad Orr gave a presentation called “Looking at Atoms.” After most Saturday Morning Physics talks, attendees can examine the equipment used to conduct the demonstrations. On the left: Charlie Nielsen; on the right: Jim Halk.

On April 5 & 12, 2003, Katie Freese, U-M Professor of Physics, gave a talk entitled “Dark Matter and Dark Energy in Cosmology.” Dr. Freese posed with the Lowbrows who attended her talk.
