What is the Discover Science Lecture Series?

The Discover Science Lecture Series was founded by the College of Science in 2010, with the goal of bringing the country's top scientists to the University to share their knowledge, research and wisdom with the community.

Past speakers in the series include astrophysicists Michio Kaku and Neil deGrasse Tyson; Robert Ballard, who discovered the wreck of the Titanic; and Bill Nye the Science Guy.

All Discover Science Lecture Series events are free and open to the public. Registration is required to attend.

Stay tuned! More 2023-2024 speakers will be announced soon.
