Saturday Physics Series

Overview

The Saturday Physics Series consists of five to six scheduled talks. At each talk, adults and high school students meet a University of Colorado professor and learn about his/her research. Talks usually last about one hour. Material is presented at the level of high school juniors and seniors. The series is free, open to the public, and no reservations are required. Simply show up and enjoy the show!
