Science on Tap

Wednesday, March 20, 2019

A monthly gathering at Manhattan's Tallgrass Tap House, featuring public discussion on engaging science topics.

All About The Event:
Science on Tap features a short introduction to the scientists research, time to engage with fellow attendees around the research presented, then the event wraps up with an conversational Q&A period. These events are a great way to meet new people over a good, science conversation and Tallgrass beer. The event starts at 7:00 p.m., but arrive early to secure a seat and enjoy some food and beverages. Everything takes place in the Tallgrass Taphouse’s Firkin’ Room.

March's Topic:
March will feature scientist Kent Connel. Kent is a PhD candidate in the Division of Biology at Kansas State University. Kent researches the ecosystem impacts of exotic plant invasion and woody encroachment into grasslands at the Konza Prairie Long Term Ecological Research site. His work focuses on how carbon dioxide production in soils is affected by the interactions between plant roots and the wide diversity of microorganisms that call soil home.
