PANOPLY: "A wide ranging and impressive display." This year's Scientia Lecture Series calls on numerous members from the Rice community to talk about their work. Each lecture will include three speakers speaking for 10-12 minutes each. The aim behind this year's theme "Panoply" is to introduce to the dazzling array of research and creative works that constitutes Rice. The series promises to be both wide ranging and impressive.

Scientia is a faculty-led Institute at Rice that promotes multidisciplinary engagement to benefit the university and the Houston community at large.
