July 12, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Buy Tickets Now!

In this Science Speakeasy we’re stepping up to the pitcher’s mound! First, explore the connection between long distance precision throwing and our evolutionary split from other primates with evolutionary biologist Nathan Young, who uses modern technology to study human evolution. Then, San Francisco Giants’ official orthopedic surgeon Ken Akizuki will share how he keeps our Giants’ pitchers in optimum condition to win.

Explore the science behind our everyday lives at Science Speakeasy. Join us at Public Works for science, storytelling, experiments, food, drinks and conversation. These events are for adults ages 21+.

Doors open at 6:00 pm for drinks, food, and other fun.

The talks start at 7:00 pm.

Event details and tickets coming soon!
