Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar
For adults 21+ only
Thinkery is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 crisis.
We will remain closed for general admission until further notice.
It sounds like the opening line of a joke
But it’s actually a unique opportunity for Austin-area adults to engage with the local scientific community at bars and restaurants in their own neighborhoods.
During Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar Thinkery sends pairs of scientists out to different bars and restaurants, where the public is invited to ask them questions in an informal, relaxed setting. Pull up a barstool, have a couple of drinks and pick the brains of some friendly local scientists!
Those scientists will be easy to spot, as they’ll be sitting near a sign that reads “We are scientists. Ask us anything!” The questions are as diverse as the scientists themselves and can range from string theory to meteorites.
We’re looking for scientists for our next event!
Calling all female scientists, artists, engineers and mathematicians!
We’re looking for local STEAM professions to join our roster of scientists!
If you love great conversation and intellectually-curious people, we’d love to have you participate! Interested? Contact Angela Villarreal (firstname.lastname@example.org) to volunteer today. (Please put “Two Scientists Volunteer” in the subject line)
