Pushing the Limits is partly a viewing, reading and discussion program series for adults to explore everyday science. This series brings together books and video featuring everyday people who are pushing their own limits every day.

‍‍‍Since the beginning of time, humans have imagined and achieved ways to push the boundaries of the physical world.  We want to be stronger, smarter, and more aware, and we create stories to bring those dreams to life.  But many of those stories are no longer just stories; and with great new advances in science and techno‍‍‍logy, we are finding ways in which all of us are able to push the limits every day.

The Pushing the Limits program will explore these ideas in discussions that will include feature film quality videos and recommended popular books.  The overarching theme is one of real people, real stories and real science.

All programs will be held at Louisburg Library. Please REGISTER to participate in this continuing series.
