Long live the nerd! A regular event where nerds (and those who love them) get together to drink beer and give 20-ish-minute presentations to other nerds on subjects that are ostensibly of great interest to nerds. Past topics have included the chemistry of coffee, meat-eating plants, how drug use affects the musical brain, and bike-nomics. It's like the Discovery Channel—but live and with beer!
This is a 19+ event
Sex, Love, and OH! Join the Science North crew as we unwrap the mysteries of sex and the science of attraction. We’re diving deep into what people like, why they like it, and everything in between!
The evening will include a live science show all about the science of sex, and tinkering stations showing what makes a sex toy tick, why symmetry is sexy and much more. Special guest speaker Dr. Bella Zawada from the Umbrella Clinic will be our local sexpert for the night, answering all of your (hopefully not so burning) questions. Food bebe will be also on-site selling a variety of tantalizing snacks for your enjoyment. Join us for a night out you can’t find anywhere else!
