UC Riverside Science Lecture Series 2019
Wednesday evenings in April from 6 - 7 pm at the UCR University Theatre (Humanities 400).
From Einstein to a New Science"

Every great scientist has a story to tell. A distinguished chemist and dean, an eminent nematologist and chair, and two Nobel laureates from the fields of physics and chemistry discuss how they started as first-generation college students and went on to become leaders and change makers. Both the science and the stories behind the science will be explored.
All lectures are free and open to the public. T-shirt giveaways while supplies last. No charge for parking in Lot 6.
