Based on the Science Cafe model developed in Europe in the 1990s, Science Pubs bring scientists and the public together for informal discussions around topics relevant to your world. A Science Pub is not a lecture but is a good conversation. Enjoy a cocktail or dinner while engaging with your community and local scientists and experts. Big Spring Spirits will be hosting Science Pub the first Wednesday of every month.
Science Pub is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome.
