How to Attend an HMSC Program on Zoom

The Harvard Museum of Science & Culture (HMSC) is pleased to present free virtual programs to our audiences via Zoom.

Instructions

 
To register for an event:
After registering, participants will receive a confirmation e-mail with a Zoom link.
Download the free Zoom app in advance for the best user experience. If you already have Zoom, you do not need to download it again.
Audio and video for attendees are automatically disabled during the webinar.
 

Improving Your Zoom Connection

 
  • Wired connections are better than wireless (Wi-Fi or cellular) connections. Wi-Fi connections are better than cellular (3G/4G/LTE) connections. Join Zoom from a location where you can use fast, reliable Internet connection. If joining using a Wi-Fi connection, generally this location should be as close to the wireless router as possible.
  • Zoom meetings can demand significant memory and processing power from your computer. Closing applications that you do not need during the session will help Zoom run better. 
  • Avoid downloading/loading, streaming video (Hulu, Netflix, YouTube), file synchronizations, or other high-bandwidth activities during the program.
  • If you experience technical difficulties using Zoom, we recommend you visit the Zoom Help Center for additional assistance.
Please email hmscprograms@hmsc.harvard.edu if you have any questions.
