Astronomy on Tap: April 27th
April 27, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
NEW LOCATION: this month is the first month at our new home at Hilliard’s Beer! In this much larger space we hope to continue to grow, so invite all your friends!
THIS MONTH we will hear talks from: the newest UW Professor of astronomy Jessica Werk on “The History of You: The Rather Tumultuous Past of the Atoms in Your Body”, and from UW graduate student Ethan Kruse on “To infinity and beyond: The mind-boggling scale of the universe”.
Each FREE Astronomy on Tap event features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. Most events have games and prizes to test and reward your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.
Originally founded in NYC, this is our 13th month in Seattle presented by graduate students in astronomy at the University of Washington. We’re thrilled to be hosted by Ballard’s own Hilliard’s Beer who will have a variety of beers (and plenty of astronomy) on tap.
