Lawrence Beer Company Science Night

On the evening of Monday, March 25th, the Lawrence Beer Company opened its doors to once again collaborate with the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology Graduate Student Organization (EEB GSO) for the second annual Science Night! This event featured graduate students in EEB sharing their knowledge on a variety of biological topics using specimens and hands-on activities in an informal atmosphere. Topics represented included deep sea fishes, vertebrate fossils, insect diversity, climate change, interpreting evolutionary trees, reptile coloration, bird diversity, shark and ray parasites, plants from which we make alcohol, and growing your own fungi.



Throughout the event, the Lawrence Beer Company also offered tours of their brewing facility focused on the science of brewing. Event attendees were encouraged to interact with as many biologists and topics as possible through a rousing round of Science Night bingo. The event was a huge success, and is notable among the many outreach endeavors of the EEB GSO for being one of the few events aimed at engaging adults, specifically, in conversations about science.


We had the privilege of being joined at the event by professional photographer Ginger Lobb who took all the amazing shots included in this post, as well as by outreach coordinator for the KU Natural History Museum, Eleanor Gardner, and other Natural History Museum staff. A big thank you to those folks, as well as to the fantastic staff of the Lawrence Beer Company, all of whom helped make the event a rousing success. Cheers to beer and biology!
