Fall 2020 Virtual SUTS Schedule

Thanks to everyone who responded to our Google poll! You all gave us valuable feedback on how to move forward with SUTS in a socially-distant world. We received overwhelming support for having a Science Under the Virtual Stars this semester. We will host three lectures by UT Austin graduate students in October, November, and December. Pre-recorded lectures, tours of Brackenridge Field Lab, activities and more will be posted to our website and Facebook on the first Thursday of the month. Then on our regular second Thursday of the month, we will have a live Q&A session with the speaker! A form will be provided for you to submit questions ahead of the Q&A, or feel free to ask them during the live event. Below is the schedule of speakers, with more details to come soon. Thank you all for your support!

  • October 1 (lecture posted) & October 8 (live Q&A): Christina Balentine – Super humankind: how humans have adapted to thrive all over the world
  • November 5 (activities and event link posted) & November 12 (live lecture and Q&A): Tristan Kubik – Planet of the Insects
  • December 10 (live lecture and Q&A): Isaac Miller-Crews – Animal brains!

Note: We will post the links for the videos/activities/live Q&A for each event in a separate, event-specific post. Follow this blog or our Facebook page to get event notifications.

Science Under the Stars is a free public outreach lecture series based in Austin, Texas.
