Water: Resources, Challenges, Sustainability with Deborah Swackhamer. Water (its availability and sustainability) is one of the most pressing issues in the world today. Learn about some of our most critical water challenges, discuss our state’s approach to water sustainability, and envision solutions for preserving our most valuable resource.

Genomes: Understanding Your Body’s Ancestry with David Matthes. Let us introduce you to… well, you. Delve into the science of genomes, explore your ancestors’ regions of origin, and shed some light on relationships with relatives using your own genome sequence.

The Long and Short of It with Jim Heynen. Consider writing your life’s story: daunting, right? But what if you approached it in snatches, snippets, scenes? See how focusing on the small, significant moments can fill that blank page with power-packed verbal snapshots.
