A brief description of the event(s):

Environmental Science Institute's Hot Science, Cool Talks:
The Hot Science - Cool Talks is presented by the Environmental Science Institute. Hot Science - Cool Talks provides a means for leading researchers from the University of Texas and other prominent universities to communicate their research to the public in general and the K-12 educational community in particular.

The Hot Science - Cool Talks presentations are much more than lectures. They are educational experiences with pre-lecture activities, participation by the audience in lively discussions following the lectures, and an Internet broadcast for those who cannot attend. For every lecture we produce a CD-ROM that includes the PowerPoint presentation used during the lecture, detailed notes for each slide, links to web and other additional resources on the subject material, and correlations to the TEKS. The goal of the CD-ROM production is to provide teachers with the materials needed to give their own lesson on the lecture topic.
