On this next to last night of the 2017 festival, we featured four amazing scientists at two awesome venues. Tomorrow is your last chance to participate in this year's festival!
We say good night to another excellent night of science at Casual Pint Hardin Valley! Check out our latest blog post to read all about it and plan which awesome event you want to attend tomorrow.
At Casual Pint, first we heard from Jonelle Basso, discussing marine viruses. Next, we heard from Michael Camponovo, who discussed geography and cartograph and introduced us to the Vine Middle Magnet Augmented Reality Sandbox. The venue was packed and everyone loved taking turns playing with the Sandbox and trying out the HoloLens.
We have now completed our first event of the 2017 Festival at Saw Works Brewing! Check out our latest blog post for a recap and information about upcoming events. Look for our events on social media using #tastesci.
