Saturday Science

Due to COVID-19 protocol, the LSU Saturday Science events have been postponed for the Fall 2020 semester.


2020 Spring Public Lectures

This year's Saturday Science @ LSU series of lectures for high school students, teachers, and the public has been a great success. We invite you to join us for, we think, an interesting and exciting series.

All the lectures will be held from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. at EBR Main Library, Main Room, Baton Rouge. We hope you will join us, and will look forward to seeing you and your students.
