Explorers Seminar Series

Our "Science Cafe"-style Explorers Seminars feature interdisciplinary public lectures by researchers from the University of Iowa and beyond who explore science, the environment, prehistory, culture, and the interactions of such topics. A cross-section of UI departments are represented in the series each semester, including Anthropology, Geoscience, Environmental Science, Geography, Biological Sciences, and Engineering. Explorers seminars generally take place the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the Museum’s Biosphere Discovery Hub. Each program involves an approximately 45 minute presentation, followed by discussion and refreshments from Molly’s Cupcakes in Iowa City.
