Hello everyone! I am brand new here, I was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a website or organization where I can find physics talks I can go to. I live near Washington DC. I've google-searched everything I can think of, and checked the Georgetown Physics dept website also. Everything I find seems to be for professionals or students, and I am neither. I've always been interested in science but recently got totally addicted to it thanks to Prof Brian Cox and Neil DeGrasse Tyson. I'm reading "The Quantum Universe" and really want to learn more about quantum mechanics, particle physics and the Higgs boson. I would love to go to some in-person lectures in addition to reading books and watching TV shows. Can anyone help me out?
