think + drink (science)

On the second Wednesday of each month, from 7 to 9 p.m., we transform the Bishop Planetarium into a forum for discussions at think + drink (science), a place where you can grab a beer or a glass of wine (or a soft drink) and learn about cutting-edge science in a relaxed, informal setting. Typically our "expert du jour" gives a short presentation on the topic of the month, and then opens the floor for questions and discussion. Drinks and bar snacks available for purchase. Feel free to bring food.

Roadside Geology of Florida with Harley Means

Walt Disney World, the moon landing, shark attacks these are things the average person readily associates with Florida, but geology . . . ? Not so much. From the panhandle through the Central Lakes District all the way to the Dry Tortugas, Harvey Means, co-author of Roadside Geology of Florida and Assistant State Geologist, will lead you through a world of cavernous limestone, roiling springheads, and rock strata containing the remains of some of the strangest animals that ever walked the Earth. Return to the museum Saturday, October 4 for a special Family Night event: National Fossil Day where Harley and other geologists, paleontologists and amateur fossil hunters will share their finds and their knowledge of Florida's ancient past.

think + drink (science) is $2 for members, $4 for non-members.
