The MITCOB met at the EVOO restaurant in Kendall Square to swap stories, memories and ideas and most particularly to hear Dr. Don Sadoway, the John F. Elliott Professor of Materials Chemistry, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, [Course III] discuss "Extreme Electrochemistry" as explored in GroupSadoway and its application to large-scale energy storage in the nationwide electrical grid. Prof. Sadoway presented a frank comparison of the costs and capacities of liquid metal batteries versus other storage chemistries, and invited the assembled alums to consider for themselves which would likely lead to large-scale adoption, especially as regards alternative energy. The meaty ideas he offered complemented the fabulous entrees and scrumptious desserts at EVOO and left the audience satisfied but eager to learn more.

The Club of Boston’s 7th annual Science Trivia Challenge on April 17, 2013 was another resounding success. Twenty-four teams - school-age and adult –joined Club volunteers and moderator Professor Walter Lewin for an evening of trivia ranging from bosons to biofuels to broccoli! Each year, the four top-scoring teams enjoyed a meal with MIT Nobel Laureates, luminaries like Jerome Friedman, Robert Horvitz, Wolfgang Ketterle, and Phillip Sharp.
This coming year we add a new twist to our game: regular MIT and science trivia directly to your e-mail inbox! If you joined us in April, keep playing along. If you’re new to the Challenge, join us now! Once a month, MIT-specific and general science trivia questions will be included in the Club newsletter.
