Come to the cabaret where science is the star! Using comedy, game-show formats, skits, and other non-traditional teaching formats, young adults will take the stage to share scientific knowledge with other youth and audience members of all ages. Think Saturday Night Live! Tickets: $10 at the door.
Four Saturdays, 8 to 9:30 pm
This is a fun opportunity for fans of science to join together, advance scientific literacy, and strengthen community connections. By presenting good science in a lighthearted format, we aim to help audiences better understand the scientific method and how scientific models works. We also aim to make science accessible to a diverse audience, in hopes that the scientific community of the future will be more reflective of the diversity of our nation.
