The series brings current scientific research to communities throughout the state and serves as a method of collaboration between each major campus of the University of Alaska system, state and federal agencies, and nonprofit organizations. Each year, administrators, faculty, staff and the public weigh-in on possibilities for speakers and topics to be included in the popular lecture series. The result is a well-rounded event that pools expertise from scientists studying in various locales in Alaska, on topics as diverse as alternative energy to walruses.
Nearly time for a new round of science lectures. Attend in person if you’re in Fairbanks or watch online when the lectures get posted to their YouTube playlist. See the 2016 Lecture page for a list of this year’s topics.
