Wouldn’t it be nice to just knock back a beer with an egghead at your local watering hole? Welcome to Tacoma Science Café. The new free monthly program, sponsored by the Pacific Science Center and KCTS 9, kicks off at the Harmon Brewery on Thursday with a discussion about micro plastic particles that are being discovered everywhere from the Thea Foss Waterway to the Pacific Ocean. The format of the monthly discussions begins with a local scientist delivering a 20- to 30-minute talk on a subject of scientific and popular interest and then taking questions.
Egghead! We got into a bit of a mess with glibly tossing the word egghead around a couple of years ago but I suppose that is the power of the MSM. Me, I would love to go to a pub to hear a lecture on this or that. It would make for a great use of a pub on a slow mid-week night and also breath some life into what might be a dusty topic, otherwise.
