Science on Tap

Feb 14, 2011
National Mechanics, 22 S. Third Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106

Science on Tap is a monthly gathering that features a brief, informal presentation by a scientist or other expert followed by lively conversation.

In celebration of the International Year of Chemistry (IYC 2011), we're pleased to welcome Sam Kean, author of The Disappearing Spoon and Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements. Kean, who was interviewed in a recent episode of Distillations, the Chemical Heritage Foundation's award-winning podcast, will speak further about his publication and the human stories within the field of chemistry.

Presented by CHF.

Open to the public (age 21+ or accompanied by chaperone 25 years or older).
