Soup and Science is held for one week at the start of each fall and winter term. Each day at lunch, undergraduate science students are invited to see and hear some of our coolest professors give short presentations about their research. Then as you mingle over lunch, you will be able to find out more about their research and how you can participate. Come and discover some of the opportunities that exist both within and outside your own departments.

The Winter 2010 edition of Soup and Science took place January 11-15, 2010, 11:30 AM each day, in the Redpath Museum.

Webcasts: Most presentations are now available as webcasts and podcasts. Both audio and video versions are available. (Some presentations are not available due to copyright concerns.)
