Wednesday, December 11, the place to be is downtown at Perkins Coie for Batteries Included. As you might suspect, this panel discussion is all about batteries and where the technology is headed in the future.

It’s the Rat City Rollergirls’ 2nd Annual Black Eyed Ball and Auction on Friday, December 13, at 1927 Events in Belltown. This holiday party is 1920’s themed. So look out for the flappers.

Saturday, December 14, head over to Neighbors on Capitol Hill for the Accessory Runway Showcase by Chance Fashion. You’ll see the latest by Genius Threads, Creatrix Headdresses, Zero Mask and more.

If Sunday, December 15, sounds like movie night, the Northwest Film Forum on Capitol Hill has a great one. An Education was nominated for several oscars but few people have seen this sweet film about a starry eyed high school student in 1961 suburban London. Flashback!

If flappers, puppets and teenaged artist don’t get you going, that’s okay. Seattle is loaded with all kinds of classes and educational events. Here are just a few of our favorites this week.

Tuesday, December 10, at Foege Hall Auditorium at UW learn something from Dr. Tom Reh. In his NeuroTalk lecture he’ll be discussing ways to restore sight to the blind. Fascinating stuff.

Free classes. Yes! On Wednesday, December 11, Freehold Theater in Belltown is offering a sample of their classes, no charge. That’s a good deal for some great classes.

On Thursday, December 12, students and parents can find out how to advance their education at the Seattle Skills Center Programs at John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence in South Seattle. Learn more about educational opportunities in culinary arts, fire sciences, aerospace and more.

On Friday, December 13, at the Good Shepherd Center in Wallingford, Kathryn Madden Ph.D. delivers her talk From Chaos to Creative Ritual in Life Transitions. Heady, psychological, intriguing.
