Science Speakers Program

Why is the sky blue? Is there life on other planets? How do I pursue a career in science? The UArizona NASA Space Grant Science Speakers Program brings faculty, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, and University clubs to your class or organization to give talks on a variety of topics. The presentations range from graphic demonstrations of natural phenomena to reports on current research projects and cutting-edge technology.

How it Works

Educators in the Tucson area select a presentation they are interested in and use the online list to contact the speaker. Once the teacher and speaker agree on a time and date, the speaker visits the classroom and gives their listed talk (note: a teacher must be present at all times during each presentation). This directory is organized according to presentation topic and topics are cross-listed under appropriate categories. Below each category heading you will find a list of presentation titles, speakers, their telephone numbers and e-mail addresses, and other information that may be useful in choosing and contacting a speaker.
