Sunday with a Scientist is a series of presentations that highlight the work of State Museum scientists and those from other UNL departments and institutions, while educating children and families on a variety of topics related to science and natural history. Presenters will share scientific information in a fun and informal way through demonstrations, activities, or by conducting their science on site. Sunday with a Scientist programs are the third Sunday of each month. The next is Dec. 18 — rocks and minerals.

The Nebraska Center for Virology, a Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE), was formed in the fall of 2000 under the Institutional Development Award (IDeA) program. The Center combines the expertise and facilities of Nebraska’s leading biomedical research institutions: the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and Creighton University. Junior and established researchers at these institutions conduct innovative and collaborative research efforts supported by the Center’s state-of-the-art core facilities. –
