Go Live With Our Scientists!

Each week, tune into our Facebook Live episodes where our scientists cover today's big topics.

Conversations include COVID-19 updates, environmental issues, space exploration, and design and engineering.  There is always a Q&A, so bring your questions!  You can find all dates and times on our Events Calendar.  All videos can be watched live on our Facebook, and past episodes are available on our YouTube channel.
