    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I am 56 years old and in dire need of a refresher on such basic science topics. So, I wondered if there are others in the “older” age group might also (a) be interested in such a refresher on basic science topics; and (b) bringing together “young” and “old” can be a mutually-beneficial situation—it’s a universal and age-old human principle. In other words, I wonder if others like myself might also “qualify” for such Science or other programs? Arlington could demonstrate that it values broad “diversity” that does not leave out but includes the “older”/aging / the baby-boomer generations …it takes a community and then some…
    Thank you. Just a thought.
