7:30 pm

We’ve long known that beer and conversation go together.

We hope you’ll join us for Science on Tap, a monthly science cafe organized by the KU Natural History Museum and hosted here at the Free State Brewery.

Here’s how it works:  A moderator introduces a science or technology topic.  After a short break for food or drink, the moderator encourages the crowd to ask questions about the subject and interact. Come early for dinner, eat and drink during the event, or join us just for the conversation. The program will begin at 7:30.

A lot of smoke, but no fire: A history of the antivaccine movement

Moderator - Jennifer Raff, Assistant Professor, Biological Anthropology

There is overwhelming consensus among scientists and parents about the safety and efficacy of vaccines in preventing infectious disease. And yet, there persists a vocal minority of people who believe that vaccines don't work or are dangerous to all children. At this Science on Tap, Dr. Jennifer Raff will lead a discussion about the the anti vaccine movement and practical ways of engaging the community.
