Named for the late Earnest C. Watson, who founded the series in 1922, these lectures feature speakers from Caltech and JPL, speaking on their cutting-edge research.
Through a gift from the estate of Richard C. Biedebach, the Watson Lecture Series has expanded to nine lectures annually.
Many past Watson Lectures are available for viewing online on YouTube or on iTunes U.
The series brochure for the 2019-2020 Watson Lecture Series will be available in print and online near the end of the summer.
