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.

Secrets in Stone
Moderator: Sandra Olsen, KU professor of Museum Studies

Saudi Arabia is still largely terra incognita, but its most remote reaches are home to some of the best rock art on the planet.  Recent research
 by a team of scientists and a world-class photographer has unlocked many of the mysteries contained within the ancient carvings.  Dramatic scenes of hunters and their packs of dogs dispatching  now extinct wild bulls and other large game bring long-past events to life in amazing detail.  For this Science on Tap, Sandra Olsen, KU professor of Museum Studies and archaeologist, will share her exciting adventures and important insights about Arabia’s deep cultural history.. Bring your curiosity and your questions!
