Science Speaker Series

The Discovery Center’s “Science Everyone Can Understand” speaker series delivers fascinating lectures for adults and mature young adults featuring scientific authorities who bring the latest discoveries to life for scientists and non-scientists alike.

Now in its eleventh year, Science Speaker Series explores topics ranging from pre-historic Californians to stem cell research. Program offerings are open to everyone and are designed especially for helping the general public and high school students clearly understand diverse and topical science topics.
