Life Chats and Poetry

In our first meeting, we discussed the big question "What is Life?"


When looking for life in space, we need to know how to define it.


How do we know that fire is not alive, or that a bacterium is?

Good Deed Club

We are planning a used sports equipment drive for two remote villages in Ghana: Abetifi-Kwahus and Yaw Tenkorang. Stay tuned for more information after our Friday meeting.

In the meanwhile, take a peek at one of the villages; fast forward to the end to see some of the children.

Adopt One Village - The Village of Yaw Tenkorang - Ghana - Phantom Quadcopter V3
