What is it?

This week, head over to the Redpath museum to listen to a collection of professors provide a short presentation of their research. Make sure to get there early, as seating is limited and spots fill up fast. Following the presentations, students are invited to mingle with the presenters over lunch to find out more about their research and how they can get involved.

Soup and Science is being held January 13 to 17, 11:30 AM each day at the Redpath Museum.
