Dr. Brian P. Schmidt (2011 Nobel Laureate in Physics): The Universe From Beginning to End, 2009

The OI is committed to making the discoveries and excitement of  origins related science accessible to the public. To this end we have built two very effective programs that have engaged thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds over the years.  

Our Origins Institute Public Lecture series bring to our campus cutting-edge scientists and world renown speakers to engage the public, and meet with our students and faculty.  The video recordings of these outstanding lectures are available in the Media Library

Our Origins Institute 3D Theatre  presents programs put together by our team that utilize professionally produced materials generated by state of the art scientific supercomputer simulations, observations, and experiments. The shows are given by Ph.D. students and feature question and answer periods.
