The KU Natural History Museum's Science on Tap series

Critics' Choice

In 2010, following a long tradition of Café Scientifique, the KU Natural History Museum teamed up with Free State Brewing Co. for Science on Tap and took science off campus and into the more informal setting of downtown Lawrence. Three times a semester — and twice in the summer — speakers from KU, KU Medical Center and sometimes Kansas State offer their expertise in Free State's beer hall. "We have had everyone from paleontologists, herpetologists and entomologists to experts in water levels in Kansas, physics, social media, climate change, science fiction, social justice, and even sex and relationships," says Jen Humphrey, the museum's communications director. With lectures like "100 Years of Ecological Change in Central Mexico" and "The Role of the Gut Microbiome in Alcoholic Liver Disease," you can easily expand your repertoire of bar-stool knowledge for only the price of a pint.
