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!

From the current coronavirus outbreak to climate change to brewing better beer, science touches every aspect of our society. While trust in science is high, often people pick and choose the science they wish to believe and simply providing more information is not enough to change minds or impact behavior. Join us for this Science on Tap online presentation with Dr. Allison Coffin who will explore the intersection between science, communication, and storytelling to increase the impact of science in society.

Dr. Coffin is an Associate Professor of Neuroscience at WSU Vancouver and the president of Science Talk.
