outreach_hotscience-cooltalks_aThe Environmental Science Institute (ESI), an affiliated program of the Jackson School, hosted its 100th Hot Science-Cool Talks event on Jan. 22, 2016.

Jackson School Professor Julia Clarke delivered the 100th talk, called “The Secret Lives of Dinosaurs.” Over 1,000 people attended the talk, claiming all available tickets to the event.

Hot Science-Cool Talks is a science lecture series that connects the local community with scientific research happening at UT Austin and other prominent universities.

The lectures are delivered by a scientific speaker and are free and
open to the public. ESI Director and Jackson School Professor Jay Banner started the program as a geology lecture series in 1999, but it has since expanded to include speakers from across scientific disciplines.
