UT Arlington faculty will present a series of engaging online talks for all community members beginning June 16, 2021. Each session is designed to highlight some of the interesting and relevant research being conducted at the university.

The first session, Creative Escapes: Astronomy and Space Exploration will feature Dr. Nila Veerabathina, and Dr. Ramon Lopez from the Department of Physics, College of Science. Their individual topics will be Celestial Beauty: Spot and Shoot and Electric Science.

The Creative Escapes series is hosted by the Center for Research on Teaching and Learning Excellence (CRTLE) and began last summer to give community members a break from the stress of the pandemic. Dr. Ann Cavallo, Assistant Vice Provost and CRTLE Director, said “We’re very excited to offer Creative Escapes.
