What’s New in Science is a new series designed for high school and middle school science teachers and all other interested learners, to find out more about the most recent discoveries, events, and advances in science today.

The series is held in a casual round table format, with professors from different scientific disciplines and science teachers from Kentucky schools talking among themselves, asking questions, and getting answers about new and emerging knowledge. Each session focuses on a new topic in one of the sciences – there will be four different sessions this spring that will explore subjects in physics and astronomy, chemistry, psychology, and biology.
