Civic Scientist Lecture - Robert F. Curl Jr., Ph.D., and Sir Harry W. Kroto, Ph.D.

Please scroll down to view webcast.

The Civic Scientist lectures are a series of talks by leading scientists from around the country who have influenced public policy. The series seeks to expose scientists and future scientists to the notion that their roles extend beyond the laboratory. It also gives the Houston community an opportunity to hear leading scientists discuss their fields and careers, with the goal of promoting science and technology as a public priority worthy of federal, state and local funding.

Event co-hosted with Rice University"s Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology.
