You know, I’ve always wanted to drink and learn at the same time. Unfortunately, while attending Ramapo College for my undergrad, this was greatly discouraged. Shots of Jack Daniels before Classical Music 101… didn’t go over so well. Isn’t that right, Glen?
However, due to a monthly science cafe created by several of Philadelphia’s science museums, including the Chemical Heritage Foundation, the Wagner Free Institute of Science, and, my personal favorite, The Academy of Natural Sciences you can do just that, and at Philly’s favorite geek hangout, National Mechanics, no less! Science on Tap… I’m sold.
Last month, Science on Tap discussed plant ecology and biology, and come July, you can learn about the origin of limbed animals and fossil discoveries in the arctic. However this month’s talk at National features Janet Monge of the Wagner Free Institute. She’ll be talking about her career as a forensic anthropologist in discussion called The Unknown Skeleton – Forensic Anthropology and the Unsolvable Case.
Will she touch on issues raised in Dexter? Not likely. Will Eric Smith ask her questions about Dexter anyway? You bet.
Come on out. Science on Tap meets on the second Monday of every month.
