Explore cutting edge science topics, their latest developments, and their relevance to society through speaker presentations followed by conversations between speaker and audience.

Sponsored by the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences, and hosted by the Museum of the Rockies, 600 W Kagy Blvd, Bozeman, Montana, the talks are presented on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm, followed by a brief social time with light refreshments in the museum lobby where audience members can engage the speaker.

The talks are free to the public.  All lectures have a limited capacity and are open on a first-come, first-served basis.  Doors open 30 minutes prior to each lecture.  Attendees may not save seats for others.

NOTE: The Fall 2020 Science Inquiry Series has been cancelled in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.  All fall speakers have been rescheduled for the Winter/Spring 2021 series–see “Upcoming Presentations” for the lineup.  Status of the Winter/Spring 2021 series will be finally determined by the status of the pandemic and any mitigations as we approach year’s end.  In the meantime, we hope you will take advantage of our new feature, Science Link (see below), to keep up on cutting-edge scientific research.  Stay tuned, and stay safe!
