This spring we are launching SPOT: Science Public Online Talks, free for all UM alumni, students, faculty, and friends.

Join us online for weekly talks from UM faculty and alumni experts. Discover our diverse ecosystem at the UM Faculty of Science.

We'll explore both research and career topics, from Nobel Prize winning discoveries, the origins of our universe, examining life on the smallest scales, new technologies, augmented humans, indigenous science, antibiotic resistance, or why emotional intelligence is an essential skill that will set you apart.

Our alumni speakers include Dr. James Peebles, winner of the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics.

Lectures will be presented live from 3:30pm CDT each Friday from May 8 – August 28. The talks are expected to take approximately 30-40 minutes (with half of the time for questions).

Recordings will be available after each session on the UM Faculty of Science Youtube channel.
