Stanford’s acclaimed Summer Science Lecture Series will be on the lawn next to Stanford’s Cantor Arts Center on some Thursday evenings this summer. You are invited to go early and wander through the Cantor, have dinner at the Art Center’s Cool Café, or bring your own picnic. You can then settle on the lawn outside of Cantor to hear fascinating and informal lectures about leading research from some Stanford’s most esteemed professors. 

All of the talks will be delivered in terms understandable to the lay public.  So bring your family (high school age and up) and enjoy!  The Outdoor Science Series is sponsored by the Stanford Office of Science Outreach and Stanford Continuing Studies.  All lectures begin at 7pm and are free.
