In this study group, we’ll learn about some of the physical and mathematical concepts behind various aspects of modern technology. In this six-session study group, we’ll cover topics such as the sensors that make autonomous vehicles possible, fusion power, encryption, hydrogen fuel cells and other renewable energy sources, LEDs and digital cameras, and digital memory.

The style will be primarily online lecture, with some online demonstrations and discussions. There will not be any assumed knowledge of math or physics, the only pre-requisite is to be curious (and a device with which to use Zoom). Questions? Contact Instructor Brian Worthmann at

The study group will meet Mondays on March 15 and 29, April 12 and 26, and May 10 and 24. Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
