Test your knowledge with a panel of the smartest -- and funniest -- climate scientists D.C. has to offer! Host Kasha Patel (NASA journalist by day, stand-up comedian by night!) will guide our guests and audience through a night of news, fake news, clearly made up stories not even resembling real news, and of course, limericks!
Join taste of science Washington DC on April 26 as Dr. Hannah Wakeford takes us through the exciting world of exoplanet exploration! Thousands of alien worlds have been discovered in the past 20 years, but only a select few are ripe for atmospheric observation. Come out to Busboys and Poets Mount Vernon and see how researchers are closer than ever to making science fiction a reality.
Join taste of science DC on April 24th as we raise a glass (or two) to the science that brings us beer!

Free taste of science pint glasses to the first 20 attendees!
