The Ronald E. Hatcher Science On Saturday Lecture Series

In memory of our beloved Science on Saturday host, Ronald E. Hatcher.

Join us for a virtual Science on Saturday 2021 season via Zoom. You will only need to register one time to be able to access all of the lectures. See you there!


We are proud this year to offer the Ronald E. Hatcher Science on Saturday Lecture Series live online starting Jan. 9 at 9:30 a.m. and continuing through March 13. The series kicks off with a lecture on “The Renaissance of the Stellarator Fusion Concept,” by PPPL physicist David Gates, head of Advanced Projects.  

Science on Saturday is a series of lectures given by scientists, engineers, and other professionals involved in cutting-edge research. Held on Saturday mornings throughout winter, the lectures are geared toward high school students. The program draws more than 300 students, teachers, parents, and community members. Topics are selected from a variety of disciplines.

If you can’t attend the live lecture, the talks will be posted on the Science on Saturday Archives.
