"I want to give a 'shout out' to the Cornerstones of Science program. I attended my first Cornerstones event today. I went to a lecture at the Curtis Library given by Dana Waring. I was a little apprehensive about attending, as it was a 'genetics' lecture and I have no background in genetics. However, the speaker truly made the lecture very conversational, lively and accessible to all. Her slides were excellent. There was a wonderful Q & A at the end. Lastly, attending the lecture spurred an interesting dinner table conversation with my husband and my two children. Bravo to Cornerstones of Science for providing this high-quality programming!" - Meg Austin, Mother of two, Brunswick, October 2014
