Upcoming Events

Our 2021-2022 "Science on the Horizon" series continues through April 2022. We are holding in-person presentations, with socially distanced seating, in the Emert Auditorium (ESLC 130) in the Eccles Science Learning Center on the USU campus. Each presentation begins at 7 p.m. Presentations are also livestreamed from our website. NOTE: Current pandemic conditions prevent us from offering our usual in-person learning activities in the ESLC atrium following each presentation. In the meantime, we invite guests to enjoy our volunteers' Video Learning Activities. All presentations are recorded and posted to the website within about a week of the live presentation.
