Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar Suds & Science


BE WiSE (Better Education for Women in Science and Engineering) is a program that stimulates and sustains girls’ interest in science through engaging hand-on activities at science career sites all around San Diego County. Through this program you can connect with girls as female scientist role-models and/or host a workshop at your own institution. 

Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar®

During Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar®, local scientists will enjoy something we all do: a beer and good conversation in a local bar. Join them, and ask them anything you want! They'll be easy to spot. Just look for the sign that reads: "We are scientists. Ask us anything!"

Suds & Science

Sometimes the most interesting discussions occur over a beer or a glass of your favorite vino. That’s the concept behind Suds & Science, a monthly event that brings scientists face-to-face with the general public in a neighborhood bar.
