Science on Tap is a science lecture series where you can sit back, enjoy a pint, and laugh while you learn. Listen to experts talk about the science in your neighborhood and around the world. You don’t have to be a science geek to have fun—all you need is a thirst for knowledge!

Science on Tap goes online!

In these times of cancelled classes and events it’s comforting to know that some things haven’t changed. While we stay safe at home, bird migration continues just outside our windows.

At this special online Science on Tap we’ll be joined by Dr. Nicole Michel, a Senior Quantitative Ecologist with the National Audubon Society’s Science Division. She will tell us about birds you can see in your neighborhood or local park and how you can attract more birds to your yard. We’ll follow the adventures of individual birds as they travel between breeding and wintering locations, and face threats along the way. You’ll discover how advanced technology – machine learning, space stations, and more – lets us delve deeper into the wonders of bird migration. Finally, you’ll leave with ideas for what you can do to help protect the birds we love.
