Museum Lecture Series

by Beta Beta Beta Chi Nu Chapter

There are a bunch of free, very exciting lectures that are going on right in Boston over the rest of the semester. We’re going to gauge people’s interest and see if we can organize group trips. Some of them require pre-registration, but others do not. They will be going on at the Harvard Museum of Natural History and at the New England Aquarium. Before you go (or if you can’t go) check out the related TED link to learn a little bit more on the subject.
