    Discover Science Lecture Series at UNR

    Free Talks from Top Authors and Scientists

    The Discover Science Lecture Series at the University of Nevada, Reno brings renowned scientists and science lecturers from around the country to share their knowledge with the community.
    Lectures are held in the evening at 7 p.m. in the Redfield Auditorium in the Davidson Mathematics and Science Center on the University campus. Admission is free and on a first come basis. Parking is reserved for the event on the top level of the Brian J. Whalen Parking Complex on North Virginia Street, next to the E.L. Wiegand Fitness Center. For more information, call (775) 784-4591 or visit the Discover Science Lecture Series website.

    Dr. William Tate, Washington University
    February 6, 2020

    William F. Tate IV is the Edward Mallinckrodt Distinguished University Professor in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis. He currently serves as Dean of the Graduate School and Vice Provost for Graduate Education.

    Tate has a particular interest in STEM attainment. Ongoing research projects include understanding the distal and social factors that predict STEM doctoral degree attainment defined broadly to include highly quantitative social sciences disciplines.

    Tate's lecture is titled
    “Is Space + Race > STEM Opportunity?" According to Tobler’s first law of geography, “Everything is related to everything else, but near things are more related than distant things.” This lecture describes the implications of this law for opportunity to learn in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education. Using geospatial methods, Tate illustrates the relationship between place and STEM attainment.

    Dr. Harry Jol, Geoachaeologist and Holocaust studies
    March 12, 2020
    Dr. Harry Jol is a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, geoarchaeologist and researcher specializing in the use of ground-penetrating radar (GPR). Jol will be discussing his research, particularly his use of GPR in Holocaust studies at suspected locations of mass graves, destroyed synagogues, ritual bathhouses and other structures in Lithuania that have been lost to time. Because the sites cannot be excavated, the GPR's non-invasive imagery has been critical to the research.

    Dr. Harrison Schmitt, geologist and Apollo 17 NASA astronaut
    April 9, 2020
    Dr. Harrison Schmitt is an American geologist, retired NASA astronaut, university professor, former U.S. senator from New Mexico, and, as a crew member of Apollo 17, the most recent living person to have walked on the Moon. In December 1972, as one of the crew on board Apollo 17, Schmitt became the first member of NASA's first scientist-astronaut group to fly in space. As Apollo 17 was the last of the Apollo missions, he also became the twelfth of the twelve men who have set foot on the Moon.

    Dr. David Wineland, Nobel-laureate physicist: Optical Atomic Clocks
    April 23, 2020
    Dr. David Wineland is an American Nobel-laureate physicist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and currently the Philip H. Knight Distinguished Research Chair and Research Professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Oregon in Eugene. A long-term goal of Dr. Wineland's work has been to increase the precision of atomic spectroscopy, the measurement of the frequencies of atoms’ characteristic vibrations. This research has applications to making better atomic clocks and has led to experiments that enable precise control of atomic energy levels and motion. Such control can be applied to measurements whose precision is limited only by the constraints of quantum mechanics and to demonstrations of the basic building blocks of a quantum computer.

    Join us on April 23rd for Dr. Wineland's lecture titled Optical Atomic Clocks
