American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics
AIAA SF holds monthly dinner meetings on topics of general interest to aerospace professionals.
Café Scientifique Silicon Valley
"Café Scientifique is a place where anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. The Café provides a forum for debating science issues outside a traditional academic context. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable - all spoken in plain English. There is no admission charge to attend our events. Building on its great success outside the United States, Café Scientifique Silicon Valley is the first such Café on the West Coast. We meet monthly to discuss a variety of science topics."
Computer History Museum - Speaker Series
The Computer History Museum is the world's largest and most significant history museum for preserving and presenting the computing revolution and its impact on the human experience. Come and discover how computing became the amplifier for our minds and changed the way we work, live and play. We hope your visit will be educational and entertaining, and that the legacy of these innovations will inspire you and many others for generations to come.

The Computer History Museum hosts public lectures on the history of computing. These lectures are respected by scholars as an important source in computing history and, in some cases, represent the only known recordings of important computer pioneers.

Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center Colloquia
The Palo Alto Colloquia are a long-standing tradition of public outreach that deliver information about aerospace research and development news to the local community. Presentations are scheduled on Thursdays at 4:15pm in the LM ATC Auditorium in Building 202 and last about an hour. Refreshments are available at 4:00pm. Visitors are welcome. Plans are underway to provide the complete presentations through the ATC web site. Stay tuned and stop by to find out the latest details about some fascinating science!
PARC Forum - Calendar of Events
PARC Forums are free and usually open to the public. Forum speakers include our own research leaders and other diverse experts in science, technology, arts, business, education, politics, and entertainment.
CSC/SETI Institute Colloquium Series
The colloquiums are free and open to the public, and run from noon to 1 pm on Wednesdays at the SETI Institute, 515 N. Whisman Road in Mountain View. Sign up for Colloquium updates
SLAC Colloquium Series
The SLAC Colloquium Series is the intellectual watering hole for the entire laboratory, where all staff can congregate to hear talks intended for a general audience on a wide variety of subjects. Many of the colloquia, naturally enough, are in areas related to SLAC's mission --- particle physics, astro-particle physics and cosmology, accelerator physics, and photon science. But there are frequently talks from such diverse fields as medicine, atomic and condensed-matter physics, planetary missions, history of science, energy research, education and public policy.
SLAC Public Lecture Series
Every other month, SLAC opens its doors to the local community for a series of evening lectures highlighting the cutting-edge science underway at the laboratory. Past lectures have featured diamonds, dark energy, the making of molecular movies, and the hunt for the Higgs.
Technology and Society Committee
The Technology and Society Committee (TASC) is a group of engineers, scientists, computer professionals, other workers in technology related fields, and other citizens in the Santa Clara Valley, who share a common concern about the social consequences of technology. TASC engages in activities to raise social awareness among technical people, and in the community-at-large, about critical issues of technology and society. It also seeks to promote a greater public accountability and responsibility for social impacts of technology and technological change.
