Science for All
The College of Sciences invites science lovers of all ages to attend State of the Sciences, which will return to the James B. Hunt Jr. Library on NC State’s Centennial Campus for the first time since 2018. On April 14, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., the college’s scientists will put on interactive activities throughout the library that demonstrate the different ways science plays an important (and fun!) role in our everyday lives.
Renowned physicist Sean M. Carroll will kick off the event at 5:30 p.m. with a special presentation in the Duke Energy Hall. Carroll is the Homewood Professor of Natural Philosophy at Johns Hopkins University and fractal faculty at the Santa Fe Institute. He has written six books and hosts a podcast called “Mindscape,” in which he interviews experts from a variety of disciplines. A password-protected livestream of the talk will be available for registrants who are unable to attend in person.
State of the Sciences is presented by the College of Sciences in partnership with the NC State University Libraries, and generously sponsored by Joseph L. Bridger ’65.
