Revision as of 16:19, 14 September 2019

This is the "instruction manual" for the Area science event list - a calendar / schedule of upcoming events. This is an incomplete list of science events (talks and science fairs; excluding book, article, or movie discussions, workshops, and events focused on finance rather than science) in the Washington area and at the STScI and BUGSS in Baltimore. Only free events are listed but registration, a free ticket, or other advance arrangements may be required (noted when known). Normal times and locations for events are given below but note that there may be exceptions. Warning: All events are subject to change with no warning.
