Interested in science, but not sure if you can digest all the technical jargon? You don’t need a PhD to have lunch with us!

Our weekly science forum provides the general public, students and other researchers an opportunity to learn about the latest cutting-edge research at UT, ORNL and other local institutions.

Grab your lunch and join us Fridays at noon in Thompson-Boling Arena Café for an opportunity to discuss the latest scientific research with distinguished professors and researchers. Presentations are 40 minutes and designed for the general public. A question-and-answer session follows each presentation. The UT Science Forum is free and open to the public.

Parking permits are available for community members who do not have a UT parking pass. Please click here to learn more about this opportunity.
