COS presents Science Cafe with Drs. Arlen and Diane Chase
When Arlen and Diane Chase first traveled to Caracol in 1983, the city was completely covered by Belizean jungle. In more than 25 years of research, the Chases, husband-and-wife anthropologists at the University of Central Florida, have pieced together what Diane describes as “a much more complete story about Caracol,” one of the largest Maya cities. As part of our celebrations for the UCF 50th Anniversary the College of Sciences will be hosting several Science Cafés to showcase our Pegasus Professors and discuss Science Beyond UCF with the Central Florida community. Admission is free, and you need no reservation—just come ready to listen and contribute. Each speaker will begin their presentation at 7 p.m. so please arrive around 6 p.m. if you plan on having dinner at Taste. All Science Cafés will be held at Taste Restaurant, which is located at 717 W. Smith Street in College Park and pictured below. Get directions to the restaurant and view their menu by visiting their website http://www.tastecp.com/.

Writes of Spring presents Cobblestones
Orlando Repertory Theatre
Orlando Repertory Theatre (The REP) presents the 10th Annual Writes of Spring 2013, Cobblestones, adapted from the select writings of over 1,800 Central Florida students, by Brandon Yagel and Jason Gerhard, and directed by Tara Kromer. A collaboration between The REP, the graduate students in the UCF Theatre for Young Audiences MFA Program, and the young people from the greater Orlando community, Writes of Spring is sponsored by Florida Blue, with support from Winn Dixie. The performances are Tuesday, April 30 and Wednesday, May 1 at 7:00pm. Writes of Spring is a unique writing contest designed to support literacy and promote creative expression in young people. Students entering Writes of Spring are given a writing prompt. The play-making team then reviews the writing entries and selects a small amount to develop one play. This year, 1,890 entries were received for the prompt “the truth about me...” The team selected 120 entries, ranging from poetry, to personal narratives and creative stories to develop this year’s play, Cobblestones. The play introduces viewers to the students’ world of playfulness, pain, confidence, and self-doubt.
