If you're one of the ~75 folks who already come to our monthly events, then you know what Suds & Science is all about. Bring your thirst and leave the dry science (and your boring PowerPoint slides) at home. This is the other side of science—the compelling personal narrative that doesn't get printed in journals. Part science, storytelling, and craft brew, and hosted by VCE biologist Jason Hill, Suds & Science is your opportunity to casually learn something while being entertained. This season features extinct birds, stone tools, migrating monarchs and more. As always, I need your help lining up dynamic and engaging botanists, anthropologists, public health specialists — scientists! — to tell us a story. So contact Jason Hill if you’ve got a story to tell.
The Vermont Center for Ecostudies' Suds & Science is a free event and meant for all ages, and all talks are recorded by our friends at CATV. Check out the current schedule or watch some of the past talks below. Please note that Suds & Science is popular (!), and talks are standing room only at the Norwich Inn--please come early to insure a seat.
