Science in Action

During each semester, the Science in Action Lecture Series is held every two weeks on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. in Building 7, Room 7106.

This biweekly series is presented in partnership with the San Francisco State University Bridges to Baccalaureate Program, the Skyline College Science and Math Division, and the Math, Engineering, Science Achievement Program (MESA).

The lecture series is free and open to the public. The topics vary and are geared not only towards science, but the entire college experience, so we encourage non-science students to attend. Attendance confirmation slips will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!

For more information on the Science in Action Lecture Series, please contact Ana Gutierrez-Gamez.
