Upcoming Events

Our new 2021-22 series begins Friday, September 17. We will hold an in-person presentation, with socially distanced seating, in the Emert Auditorium (ESLC 130) in the Eccles Science Learning Center on the USU campus. Masks are encouraged.  NOTE: Current pandemic conditions prevent us from offering in-person learning activities. In the meantime, we invite guests to view our volunteers’ Video Learning Activities. All presentations will be recorded and posted to the website within about a week of the live presentation.
