Practical Science for Conservators is an informal, educational, monthly Zoom series on chemistry and scientific fundamentals as applied to conservation. Our sessions begin with short presentations followed by discussion. The goal is to bridge the gap between scientific fundamentals and practical conservation application. Targeting conservators of all skill and education levels, presentations are delivered in a relaxed, informal environment that's a blend of graduate seminar, office hours, and Friday night get-together.

This free series is open to all conservators, conservation scientists, and conservation students. Zoom will open Friday at 5:00pm PST (8:00pm EST; 9:00pm Brazil; 1:00am Western European; 2:00am Central European; 10:00am Saturday Australia; noon New Zealand) with presentations starting at 5:10pm PST.
