think + drink (science)

On the second Wednesday of each month from 7 to 9 pm, 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.

The Evolution of Architecture

From the “cavemen” who sought shelter in existing caves to the creation of modern structures made from wood, metal and glass, humans have shown a remarkable ability to create environments to suit their needs. Join the team of architects and designers currently working to “evolve” the South Florida Museum for a discussion about the art and science of architecture that will surely open your eyes to a new way of looking at the built environments we live, work and play in.

Great Lizard! The Discovery of Megalosaurus with David Berry 

In 1824 Megalosaurus became the first dinosaur to be scientifically named and described. Meet the pioneers of paleontology involved in its discovery and learn of the challenges they faced in explaining the existence of a “Great Lizard” that lived millions of years ago.

David Berry is the Assistant Director of Academic Affairs at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota.  His interest in Megalosaurus relates to previous research on the history of museums.
