March Impulse is on line

The March 2017 edition of Impulse is now available on line. Our thanks to Impulse editor,  Keith Braithwaite!

One quick update: There are two suggestions for the May field trip. In Impulse, read about the trip to the Ecomuseum in Ste-Anne de Bellevue.

The CSI Investigation at the Science Museum, Old Port was suggested at the February meeting.

Can You Crack the Case?

You enter a crime scene, and you must lead the investigation. Based on the hit American series, CSI: The Experience is an adventure into the world of criminalistics. Record evidence, compare it to what real investigators have collected, and pursue your investigation at the crime lab with the help of forensic medicine. Solve the crime in this highly interactive investigation by comparing tire tracks, performing blood spatter and DNA analysis, and learning about forensic anthropology and toxicology.

We could start with the 3D movie on humpback whales at 10 AM, (Star Trek, connection!)

Impulse for August now on line

The August edition of Impulse is now on line.  Thank you Keith!

Our August meeting is traditionally our “fan-craft” day, and we hope you will come bearing samples of your SF/F related hobbies.

I will be giving a crash course on how to use our website, with a hand-on workshop for those interested in becoming contributors.

Keith will be speaking on copyright legislation, and how the fall out from the Axanar case will impact  fanfic & films. This case has shaken a lot of nuts out of the trees, take a look: http://axamonitor.com/doku.php?id=start

Sylvain will give a presentation on the field trip to the Sfarfleet Academy. Apparently, there are some neat little videos which were e-mailed to participants after the trip, and these will be shown.

Food–The theme for the snack table is alien food! It doesn’t have to look appetizing, but it does have to be edible!! 😉
