Events Calendar

Upcoming Events:
  • December 7, 2017: [Winter Lecture Series] Ice shelf collapse is powerful evidence of climate change. These ice shelves create epishelf lakes, a rare lake system where freshwater overlies seawater. Assistant Professor Alex Forrest will present on his team's usage of autonomous robotics to explore an epishelf lake in the remote Canadian Arctic and discuss how these "last of their kind" water bodies and ice shelves are rapidly melting. Understanding melting events in these locations is critical in predicting how the environment will react as our climates continue to change. A $5 suggested donation is collected at the entrance, no-host bar at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m. Register here!
  • December 14, 2017: [Special Event] Docent Appreciation. A special thank you to all of our amazing volunteers who generously donate their time. All docents are invited for this lively optional potluck event, bring a side dish, appetizer, dessert, or just yourself! 5:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Please RSVP to Christine Limon (cjlimon@ucdavis.edu or 775-881-7560 ext. 7483) 
  • January 18, 2018: [Winter Lecture Series] Memory: How the Brain remembers and how to make Memories Stick. Learn about the cutting-edge of human memory research. Recent discoveries in neuroscience reveal significant insights into how we remember and how we can remember better. Evidence shows that the very act of remembering can sometimes help you retain information with important discoveries about why this happens. Research also shows the surprising ways that motivation and curiosity can influence memory. These studies lay the groundwork for practical ways to improve learning and memory in education and possibly in patients with neurological or psychiatric disorders that affect memory. A $5 suggested donation is collected at the entrance, no-host bar at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m. Register here!
  • February 2, 2017: [Special Event] Science of Cocktails. Join UC Davis TERC scientists for a lively and libation-filled evening at the Tahoe Science Center. Explore several scientific principles as we measure up a mixture of cocktails. Includes science-themed bars, hors d’oeuvres, and special science demonstrations! Registration link coming soon.
  • February 8, 2018: [Winter Lecture Series] Dark Side of the Universe... What is dark matter? This elusive “stuff” makes up a quarter of the universe. Learn about research on the composition of the Universe, properties of dark matter, and the latest discoveries about the Universe’s past. Join Dr. Maruša Bradac, a physics professor at UC Davis, as she discusses the tools of her trade including the Hubble Space Telescope and Spitzer Space Telescope, the future James Webb Space Telescope, and also on the ground, the Keck Telescope in Hawaii. A $5 suggested donation is collected at the entrance, no-host bar at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m. Register here!
