Holiday Lecture Series 

The Gift of Science! 

Holiday Lecture Balloons

Since December, 2002, SEAS has held holiday lectures targeted toward families. Modeled on a famous set of presentations first given to children a century ago as part of the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures in London, the lectures highlight science in an engaging and fun forum geared for children aged 7 and up.

Experiments, audience participation, and highlights from current research bring science to the community in an event which is free and open to the public. Learn more by reading about the 2015 lecture "A Grain of Salt: Isn't it Ionic?"
