Science on Tap

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

A monthly gathering at Manhattan's Tallgrass Tap House, featuring public discussion on engaging science topics.

About Science on Tap
Held in a relaxed (and fun!) setting on the third Wednesday of the month August through April*, Science on Tap features a brief, informal presentation by a local scientist followed by lively conversation. The goal is to build our community’s enthusiasm for science in a fun and unique way.

*The August Science on Tap is held on the last Wednesday of the month.

The Details: Dates, Time & More
Each Science on Tap will feature different topics so community members will learn something new each time they attend. Free, interactive program begins at 7pm in the Tap House's Firkin Room. Be sure to arrive early to grab dinner and drinks - happy hour pricing extended to all Science on Tap attendees until 7pm - $1 off beers and $2 off appetizers. Be sure to let the Tap House staff know you are there for "Science on Tap".

This Month's Featured Guest & Topic
The October Science on Tap’s featured scientist will be Dr. Sabarish Indran. Dr. Indran is a postdoctoral fellow with the Department of Diagnostic Medicine and Pathobiology in K-State’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Indran’s research focuses on highly contagious diseases that are not currently found in the United States, but could have major economic and human health consequences should they ever reach our borders.

Science on Tap features a short introduction to the scientists research, time to engage with fellow attendees around the research presented, then the event wraps up with an conversational Q&A period.
