Science Events Sampler

The list below offers links to various web pages dedicated to live public science events.

This list is in no way comprehensive. It is intended for introductory exploration for those unfamiliar with the live public science events landscape. Events were selected for the list from among those that participated in or informed the Science Live project during 2015. For now (as of January, 2016), Science Live is a volunteer effort, and there are no immediate plans to update the list.
