Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar
For adults 21+ only
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.
Thinkery is pleased to bring Two (Women) Scientists Walk Into a Bar® to 20+ locations throughout Austin on Thursday, March 12. During Two (Women) 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!
This March, Thinkery will celebrate Women in STEAM with a very special Two Scientists Walk into a Bar event on Thursday, March 12! We’ll be out at 20+ locations throughout Austin and we’re looking for local women in 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 (email@example.com) to volunteer today. (Please put “Two Scientists Volunteer” in the subject line)
