Mini lecture series for anyone interested in learning more about all sides of Course 6 - EE, CS, math, physics, and everything in between! Geared to those who know NOTHING about Course 6 - freshmen in particular, but upperclassmen are very welcome. Demonstrations, discussions, and Q&A sessions, as well as cookies!

Meet and mingle with Course 6 (6-1, 6-2, 6-3, and 18-C) upperclassmen and grad students. Bring questions that don't pertain to our discussions as well!

Mon Jan 3: lrn2linux - want to know how to make Athena computers bend to your will? Learn some very basic tips and tricks to get you off the ground running, as well as why MIT uses Linux, and why it's so awesome. Sarina Canelake will deliver this lecture and stick around afterwards to answer any questions that you may have.

Wed Jan 5: Circuits! You probably know what the CS stands for, but what about the EE in the acronym "EECS"? Learn about the fundamentals of electrical engineering (minus the math) - what is a circuit? A mosfet? Combinatorial logic? Find out more about why being an EE rocks! Guest lecturer Kat Kononov loves mosfets more than she can explain, and is a junior in 6-1 (electrical engineering).
