It’s not a scientific mystery that learning is more fun when you’re drinking with friends and colleagues. And thus, the idea for Suds & Science was born: monthly events that bring scientists face-to-face with the general public in a neighborhood bar. The evening begins with a short fun-yet-informative presentation, which kicks off an extended discussion between the scientist and the audience—all while the audience drinks along. You can learn about everything from the science of beer to superhero physics to the genius of genomes. All of that for the price of a beverage! Suds & Science puts the fun and spirit(s) back into science.
