• Suds & Science

    Suds & Science is going virtual for the 2020-2021 season!

    Suds & Science While Jason will surely miss seeing your faces and sharing a pint in person, a virtual Suds & Science will mean no driving on snowy nights, no one turned away due to lack of seating, and greater diversity of the science subjects and scientists. So stay tuned for more updates on the upcoming schedule. Right now we're planning on a virtual session each month from January through May of 2021, and the overall format is going to become even more interactive. So what is Suds & Science, and what's this new format?

    Suds & Science isn't a lecture--it's a community discussion led by a scientist where you meet other fans of science, engage with an expert, and gain an understanding of someone's scientific research. Hosted by VCE biologist Jason Hill, there's no PowerPoint slides or overly-complex jargon...just compelling personal narratives from scientists. Our new Zoom format will retain this structure, BUT we'll have break out Zoom rooms where you'll discuss in small groups or complete a thought-provoking exercise at the direction of the speaker.

    Now Jason just has to line up the speakers. Ahem...if you're a dynamic and engaging botanist, an anthropologist with a flair, a forensic pathologist or public health specialist who can weave a science story...or you know of one somewhere in the world....then please reach out to Jason Hill and share 40 minutes of your science story at a future Suds & Science event. The Vermont Center for Ecostudies' Suds & Science is a free event and meant for all ages.
