With the help of an Engagement Incentive Grants from the K-State Center for Engagement and Community Development and support from Sunset Zoo, we are able to continue Science on Tap in Manhattan, KS. Held in a relaxed setting on the third Wednesday of the month —January through April — Science on Tap features a brief, informal presentation by a K-State scientist followed by lively conversation. The goal is to build our community’s enthusiasm for science in a fun and unique way. Science on Tap is organized through a partnership with the K-State Graduate School, the Center for Engagement and Community Development, Sunset Zoo, and Tallgrass Tap House.
This semester’s events will be kicked off on January 18 by Mark Herse, a graduate student in the Division of Biology, and he will be talking about how bird choose habitats on a landscape level. Other upcoming dates include February 15, March 15, and April 19, and details on the program will be announced soon. The free, interactive program always begins at 7 p.m. and is held at Tallgrass Tap House, 320 Poyntz Ave. Be sure to let the Tap House staff know you are there for Science on Tap.
