Lunch and Dinner Meetings with Speakers

We are planning on a full slate of lunch and dinner meetings and speakers this season! Meetings are scheduled monthly from October through April. Dinner meetings begin promptly at 6 p.m.; social time/ cash bar starts at 5:15 p.m. with a speaker following dinner. Luncheon meetings start at noon; social time at 11:30 a.m. with a speaker following lunch. Click on the Lunch and Dinner Program Schedule button for the complete list and schedule.

The venues for the meetings are The Landings Yacht, Tennis and Country Club and Heritage Palms Country Club, Fort Myers.

Both members and non-members are invited to attend luncheon and dinner meetings, but reservations are required and must be paid in advance by check or credit card because we have to make a commitment to the venues for the number of diners and they will bill us whether or not they attend.

Please click on the "Reservations" tab above for the reservation form. Email your completed reservation form to treasurer@science-swfl.org and mail your check, payable to SSSWF, to Scientists' Society of Southwest Florida, 2808 SW 45th St., Cape Coral, FL 33914-6025, or pay by credit card at the following link:

Field Trips

The Scientists' Society organizes field trips to local businesses and facilities engaged in enterprises related to science and technology.

Field trips focus on technically-oriented activities in the local Southwest Florida area. Recent field trips have included Algenol Biofuels, Inc., Lee County Sheriff's Office Forensic Center, LeeSar, Inc., Florida Highway Patrol Interagency Communications Center, University of Florida Southwest Agriculture Research and Education Center, WGCU TV and Radio Studios, Ecological Labs, Inc., and Arcadia Aerospace. Students, teachers and guests are invited to participate. Field trips often provide students their first opportunity to see STEM activities in action.

For information and reservations, contact our Field Trip coordinator, Alan Weckerling, at 239-540-2990 or email him at FieldTripCordinator@science-swfl.org.

Our first field trip of the season, the Bunche Beach Ecological Walk on November 4, 2021 was very successful. Upcoming field trips will be posted on the Field Trip Schedule page (click tab to right).
