Science Pub RVA to sip a bit of wine and discuss Cheese Mites and Acrobatic Flies: Early Popular Science Films
The Cheese Mites and Acrobatic Flies will be on the screen not in your cheese or wine I promise.
If you want to learn in a casual environment you can’t go wrong with Science Pub RVA. They host events throughout the year on topics that you had no idea even existed. The discussions are held in local drinking establishments so you can enjoy a refreshing beverage while getting a bit of knowledge in your cranium.
The next one is Wednesday, April 6th at C’est le Vin (15 North 17th Street).
An informal night about science and film. We’ll view a few, short, silent films from the early 1900’s and enjoy an open discussion with Dr. Oliver Gaycken who studies the links between scientific and experimental cinema.
5:15 – 6:00 Arrive when you wish, grab a seat, a drink, and/or some eats
6:00 – 7:15 Program and discussion
As always, we’ll have some social tables. So when you arrive, let us know if you’re flying solo & keen to meet other curious minds. In the meantime, use #SciPubRVA to get social with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
This Science Matters program for adults 18 and over is the final program of a three-part series on Seeing Machines: Humans and Technology offered in partnership with VCU’s Science, Technology & Society Program.
