"Science Sunday"

Written by Paul Sutter on Monday, 11 September 2017. Posted in From The Desk of...The Chief Scientist

Enjoy science in your life? Would you prefer to hear it from the experts themselves, instead of mangled and garbled by journalists and social media? Well, OSU has you covered with Science Sundays, a monthly lecture series that's free and open to the public. It's hosted, as you might guess, on Sundays from 3-4pm in the Ohio Union.

The series lineup this year features quite a few heavy hitters, including topics on the aging brain, the latest from particle colliders, what we're still learning from Archimedes, how we perceive food, and more. And this year was lucky to kick off with a presentation by COSI's CEO and president, Dr. Frederic Bertley, who talked about combatting declining scientific literacy.

The lectures are followed by a reception where attendees can mob the speaker with nonstop questions while munching on goodies. That seems important to mention.
