Saturday Morning Science

SMS is taking a sabbatical in spring 2020 as we rethink how it can best bring science to the community. Thank you for your interest and support. Check back in fall 2020 for more information.

Saturday Morning Science is a series of one-hour long talks on various scientific topics. No science background is required, only enthusiasm for and an interest in science. The talks are free and open to the public. If you want to know a bit more about science or if you are simply curious, come join us on Saturday morning.

If you missed a previous Saturday Morning Science, many recent talks can be found on our YouTube Channel

Grab a cup of coffee and a bagel and join us for Saturday Morning Science — a series of one-hour science talks.

These are not typical science lectures. Expect to be entertained, to see demonstrations, to learn a lot, and—best of all—to want to come back for more.

Saturday Morning Science is free and open to the public. No science background is required. All ages are welcome.

Breakfast refreshments are served before the talks, so come early. Talks start at 10:30 a.m. Doors open and refreshments are available a half-hour beforehand.
