One of the last great unexplored regions of the world, Northeast India is also the most biodiverse place in the Eastern hemisphere.

Science Under the Stars is a free, monthly public outreach lecture series founded and organized by graduate students in the Section of Integrative Biology at University of Texas at Austin. Our goals are to host fun, informal science outreach events for Austin citizens of all ages, and give scientists a venue to share their work with the general public. Events are held at 7:30pm outdoors at Brackenridge Field Laboratory, 2907 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin, Texas 78703 during the Fall and Spring academic semesters. In the case of inclement weather, lectures are held indoors. Arrive early for refreshments and fun activities for kids of all ages.
