SciPop Talks! Where Science Intersects Pop Culture

SciPop written in white text inside an exploding blue cloud with red, yellow and green streaks showing the motion of the explosion.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 Play list later this year. This first virtual talk has been submitted for editing and we'll let you know here when it goes live! Live Q & A sessions will be scheduled for each talk later in the year.

Twitter: #SciPopTalks

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.
