Undergraduate science students:
the Fall 2019 edition of Soup and Science will take place:
- September 9-13, 2019
- 11:30 AM each day
- in the Redpath Museum
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.
Follow the links below to visit participating researchers' websites.
