Welcome to SciPop, a series of interactive talks and events open to the public featuring the intersection of science and pop culture. Due to Covid-19 we were closed for the 2020-2021 school year.
We have 4 virtual talks we'll be releasing on our YouTube playlist this academic year. The first two talks are available for viewing above with 2 more to be released in Spring 2023! Live Q & A sessions will be scheduled for each talk in 2023.
These talks and events are co-sponsored by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln University Libraries, Chemistry Department and Physics Department, Doane University, and the Nebraska Local Section of the American Chemical Society.

Stand back! I’m going to try SCIENCE!
If someone nearby made that proclamation, what do you imagine is about to happen? What would “trying science” look like? Nebraska’s Jocelyn Bosley is exploring the many possible answers to those questions in the new video series “Verbing Science!”
Created in collaboration with animator Curt Bright, a broadcast specialist with the Office of University Communication and Marketing, “Verbing Science!” is aimed primarily at middle-grade students and teachers. Each episode highlights a woman in STEM, as well as a particular “habit of mind” that is essential to success in science.
SciPop presenter Dr. Rebecca Lai, an expert on science in the Harry Potter series, has been interviewed on the Ologies podcast!
