Science on Tap brewing scientific conversations in Savannah, Statesboro
Mastodons, tortoises and human trafficking are the next three installments for spring 2020 of Science on Tap, a series of unique conversations in Savannah and Statesboro about various scientific topics given by professors at Georgia Southern. The series is hosted by the College of Science and Mathematics (COSM) at Georgia Southern University.
“Science on Tap is pouring science into the community,” Associate Dean of COSM Brent Feske said. “While the lecture is given by an expert, the target audience is anyone in the community regardless of their scientific background. We choose venues to allow the audience to relax and enjoy the presentation.”
Christina Olson, MFA, a professor in the Department of Writing and Linguistics, will present on Mastodons in Statesboro on March 3; biology professor Elizabeth Hunter, Ph.D., will speak on conservation and restoration regarding tortoises in Savannah on April 2; and Kate Perry, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Political Science and International Studies, will present on women in human trafficking on April 7 in Statesboro.
Lectures in Statesboro are at Eagle Creek Brewing Company, and Savannah lectures are at Savannah Coffee Roasters. All events begin at 6 p.m.
Science on Tap aims to present scientific topics in a way that is fun for non-scientists and science enthusiasts alike. For more information on the series, visit www.facebook.com/pg/cosmgeorgiasouthernuniversity/events/.
