Each girl will receive 10 sessions, each one hour long. The sessions can be scheduled multiple times a week or up to once every month! And of course, we encourage everyone to sign up for more one-on-one sessions after they have completed 10 sessions.
Ages: 5 to 18 year olds, the curriculum will be adapted according to your daughter’s age Price: Free! Number of Sessions: 10 one hour sessions Subjects: listed on the above Date and Time: Dependent on your daughter’s and the Middlebury College student’s schedule Location: Axinn, Bicentennial Hall, or 75 South Shannon St (all of which are academic buildings on Middlebury College’s campus). If you live far from Middlebury, we may be able to meet at a halfway point for our sessions.
The cosmologist James Peebles split the prize with two astronomers, Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz, for work the Nobel judges said “transformed our ideas about the cosmos.”
This year’s Nobel Prize in Physics went to an astrophysicist who came up with sweeping ideas to explain how matter in the young universe swirled into galaxies, and to two astronomers who showed that other stars similar to the sun also possess planets.
The other half honored work by Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz, who were the first to discover a planet circling around a distant sun-like star.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced on Tuesday that James Peebles, a professor emeritus at Princeton University, shared the prize — and half the prize money of more than $900,000 — for his theories that have helped explain 13.8 billion years of cosmological history.
John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino were recognized for research that has “laid the foundation of a wireless, fossil fuel-free society.”
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences on Wednesday awarded the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to three scientists who developed lithium-ion batteries, which have revolutionized portable electronics and are very likely powering a device you’re using now to read this article. Larger examples of the batteries have given rise to electric cars that can be driven on long trips, while the miniaturized versions are used in lifesaving medical devices like cardiac defibrillators.
