Columbus (Ohio) Science Pub inaugural event

| 6 Comments

Dan Siegal-Gaskins (pdf; scroll to page 8), a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mathematical Biosciences Institute at The Ohio State University, is starting up a Science Pub in Columbus. Science pubs are a kind of Science Cafe. They’re “live events that involve a face-to-face conversation with a scientist about current science topics. They are open to everyone, and take place in casual settings like pubs and coffeehouses.”

The Columbus Science Pub will hold its inaugural event Tuesday September 7 at 7:00 pm in the basement of (what else?) a bar, Hampton’s on King right by the OSU campus in Columbus. (It is a Science Pub, right?)

The speaker will be Tara C. Smith, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology in the College of Public Health at the University of Iowa, Deputy Director of the University of Iowa Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases, founder of Iowa Citizens for Science, author of the Scienceblog Aetiology, and a participant in the Panda’s Thumb field trip to the Creomuseum. Be warned: The announcement on Facebook says “7:00 pm to 2:30 am”!

I’m going to try hard to make it down to Columbus for (some of) the festivities and other Central Ahia folks are cordially invited to join us, so mark your calendars now. I’ll post a reminder a few days before the meeting.

Thanks for announcing the event - hope to see you there :)

Freshwater ought to go.

I really like Tara C. Smith, especially after seeing this:

I like this, I have thought of trying to do something like this in the Twin Cities, to bad I am to busy trying to get published …/le sigh.

Damn it, one more thing to prevent me from doing work.…
