We are lucky in Seattle to have a great Science Cafe/Science on Tap scene, where scientists talk to a general audience about their research. There are three in the Seattle area: one in Ravenna, one in Queen Anne, and one in Kirkland. These events are great fun, both as a spectator and a participant. In fact, I’ve spoken at all of them, and you can find two of these talks online (thanks, KCTS!).
Here I am, at T.S. McHugh’s in Queen Anne in Feb 2009:
And here I am talking about “Improving Survival with Hydrogen Sulfide” in Kirkland (April 2010).
The schedule for the Seattle Science on Tap series is here for Queen Anne and Ravenna and here for Kirkland and Tacoma. Thanks to the Science Center and KCTS for sponsoring such an awesome program! If you haven’t been, you are missing out!
