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.

Birds, Bones and Beetles

Moderator - Chuck Warner


Author Chuck Warner will talk about his new book, "Birds, Bones, and Beetles: The Improbable Career and Remarkable Legacy of University of Kansas Naturalist Charles D. Bunker." In addition to discovering the famous Tylosaurus mosasaur specimen, Bunker is credited with creating the first complete catalog of the KU Natural History Museum’s collections and with guiding the Ornithology Division to national prominence in the 1930s. He’ll share information on Bunker’s lasting contributions to the natural sciences through museum collections, mentoring, and research.
