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.
