Soup & Science NREL/ESS Spring 2020 Seminar Series Schedule
Please join us each week to learn from the best and brightest at the cutting edge of sustainability and ecosystem science. Seminars are held each Friday from 12-1pm in NESB room B218.
We will continue to host researchers from CSU, invited speakers, tech talks/workshops, and graduate students seeking to share their work with a friendly audience. Speakers highlight original research that connects the departmental foci of social, physical, and ecological sciences. Volunteers will provide soup every week. All seminars are free and open to the public, although donations are encouraged for soup.
