Public Outreach Lecture Series / Fall 2011

This is a lecture series put on for the benefit of the public. Each lecture lasts approximately 30 minutes and is accompanied by 1.5 hours of star-gazing on the roof if the weather cooperates. Talks are targeted at the astronomical-education level of a layperson (oftentimes children are in attendance). Talks typically meet in Pupin 301; directions will be provided around the observatory to the lecture on each given night. For more information, go to the Wiki Outreach webpage or the Public Outreach webpage.

If you're interested in giving an outreach lecture in a coming semester, please contact Summer.
