May 23, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Buy Tickets Now!

In this Science Speakeasy prepare for some extreme science! First, we’ll explore the depths of our past with Alia Gurtov, one of six “underground astronaut” archaeologists who excavated the newly discovered Homo naledi fossils in Rising Star Cave in South Africa. Then we’ll explore the far reaches of our future with Ariel Waldman, founder of and author of “What’s it Like in Space?”, who will tell us what it’s like in space and share ways you can explore space too.

Science Speakeasy mixes science with cocktails, conversation, interactive science experiments, storytelling and more. These events are for adults ages 21+.

Doors open at 6:00 pm for drinks, food from Sneaky’s BBQ, and other fun.

The talks start at 7:00 pm.
