Join us for an evening with two Nobel Laureates who will share their life stories with students to inspire and encourage an interest in the sciences and related fields.
Dr. Thomas C. Schelling – 2005 Nobel Prize in Economics for his work in understanding conflict, negotiation and cooperation through game-theory analysis. Often referred to as the “Father of Game Theory,” Schelling served in the Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy Administrations, and later became one of the founders of the Kennedy School at Harvard University.
Dr. William Phillips – 1997 Nobel Prize in Physics along with two colleagues, for development of methods to cool and trap atoms with laser light, a technique used to slow the movement of gaseous atoms in order to better study them. Dr. Phillips works at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg.
Students free of charge, $5 entrance fee for adults

The Give Local America fundraising campaign is today Tuesday, May 6th.
Please help make a difference for Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School students by donating generously to the Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School Educational Foundation. Our goal is to raise $10K to support our students.
Where will that money go? We’ll send 75 of our neediest students to a special summer program to build their academic skills and their confidence. This year for the first time we’re hoping to include a Girls Empowerment Initiative. And we’ll help teachers launch brand new programs next fall that they’ve designed to enrich the curriculum for their students.
Thanks for your support!
Every donation will be stretched further if you donate to our organization through http://www.givelocalwashingtondc.org/#npo/bethesda-chevy-chase-high-school-educational-foundation.
We hope you will consider supporting us on May 6th!
Your donation will go a long way in helping us to ensure that every student graduates B-CC well-prepared for college and fulfilling careers.
