Science Steps Out at Woods Hole Library - May Lectures

May 15th, May 20th and May 22nd

The Woods Hole Public Library is continuing its series of lectures about recent scientific research. WHOI/MIT Joint Program graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are “stepping out” to give public talks about their current research in a public-friendly atmosphere, using vocabulary that all will be able to understand. Interested people of all ages and levels are invited to attend these free lectures which have proved to be very popular.

The talks will continue through May. The program is held in the Library’s lower level meeting room and is free and open to the public.

Check the Library website for more details.
