Follow the College of Science’s new weekly lunchtime science chats on Twitter and find out.

Each 30-minute event features a science expert. Past guests have included a representative from the National Wildlife Federation, a WBZ-TV meteorologist, the owner of Girlscientist Consulting, as well as a few of COS’ own faculty experts and students.

In posts of the requisite 140 characters or fewer, they share the latest on their research or area of expertise, fielding questions and comments from participants. The best part? You don’t need to be a scientist to join in; science enthusiasts of all levels are welcome.

Simply tune in at noon on Wednesdays using the hashtag “sciencechat.” To catch up on past topics, click here.
