Welcome to SciPop Talks!  Brought to campus by Dr. Raychelle Burks, SciPop sits at the intersection of familiar pop culture fandoms and real science. Speakers share STEM topics through pop culture such as learning about algorithms and math by discovering how dating apps make ‘love’ matches. Thanks to our sponsors, the Office of Research and Inclusive Excellence, the Library will host four talks a semester starting on Wednesday September 20th from 7-8pm with Frye Science and the Truthqueen by Dr. Burks. Further talks will be on the following Wednesdays: October 4th, October 25th, and November 8th all from 7-8pm in the Library’s lower level.
