The gloom and doom of climate change might make it look like we are not building ourselves a very bright future, but we can fix it! Our two speakers are working on solutions to fight climate change. Join us to learn how we can better understand our changing oceans and how we can develop technologies to store energy at our EARTH DAY special event!
A live recording with our friends at GLiMPSE Podcast! GLiMPSE coproducers Tim and Max will interview two cell biology experts to decide what determines the fate of our cells and therefore our bodies. Is it control over the genome to turn on and off genes? Or is it the molecular machines that carry out every action inside the cell? Come hear them fight it out, ask your own questions, and be part of a live podcast recording!
Feed your curiosity and dig in to the exciting, expanding world of food. This event will feature talks on the emergence of bio-fabricated meat, the seemingly magical effects of chocolate, and the discipline of coffee preparation in Japan. Come join us for an evening that’s sure to please the senses.
$1 from each beer sale will be donated to our festival, courtesy of Remnant Brewing company.
What does a physicist study? You might answer the Big Bang or the collision of the tiniest particles. Basically, we generally picture a physicist as Sheldon Cooper! However, the movements in a mosh pit and the deformation of a piece of Jell-O are branches of physics too! So join us to dive into the wonders of soft and active matter science!
Why do some people hear “yanny” and others hear “laurel”? Is that dress blue and black or is it white and gold? Are you actually aware of everything going on around you? Join us at taste of science to discover the answers to these questions and more! Through hands-on demonstrations and illusions, we’ll learn how the brain processes sensory information to generate your perception of the world around you and why you only perceive and remember surprisingly little of this information.
Do you want to help people satiate their scientific hunger? Join our panel of science communicators for an evening of discussion! Buffet included, proceeds benefit taste of science festivals across the US.
Join us while we investigate the science behind infantile social cognition, as well as the tug of war stress and alcohol play upon our minds. Supplementing this experience with some hops highly recommended. No experience necessary to learn!
Enhance your normal brunch experience for Earth Day with science! Local area scientists and their research groups will share their experiences in the field over delicious brunch fare and cocktails, with the goal of facilitating greater understanding of the ongoing progress and challenges of environmental science. No background knowledge is required!
