Science on the Spot: Bar Edition
Wed., Sept. 12, 7-9 p.m. and Wed., Sept. 19, 7-9 p.m. 2012
Dude, your cherry-stem-knot trick is tired. Pick up a new, less awkward icebreaker at the Red Lyon Tavern (944 Massachusetts, Lawrence, 785-832-8228) when Teresa MacDonald, public-education director for the University of Kansas Natural History Museum, and fellow educator Bekkah Lampe lead "Science on the Spot: Bar Edition."
"The museum uses these events to reach audiences that might not often visit a museum," says the museum's Jennifer Humphrey. "Science isn't reserved for the classroom — it's a part of everyone's lives." So come for the beer and stay to experience Lime Laws of Motion, Napkin Chromatography, and Peroxide Snake, among other lessons. The learning goes from 7 to 9 p.m. and is free.
