Science on Tap

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

A monthly gathering at Manhattan's Tallgrass Tap House, featuring local and regional scientists and public discussion around their research. Each event is structured slightly different, but all include a short introduction, some type of activity, and conversations with the featured scientist. This event is organized by Sunset Zoo and hosted at the Tallgrass Tap House. Additional partners include K-State Graduate School, K-State Center for Engagement and Community Development, and the Tobler Lab.

This month's focus will be [IMAGE]ing Impact and feature Sunset Zoo's Science Communication Fellow Emily Pascoe.  Emily is a graduate student in K-State’s Department of Apparel, Textiles, and Interior Design, and she will be our featured scientist in October.  Emily's interests focus on material culture and engagement, sustainability and identity as a factor for dress use, consumption, and disposal. Join Emily and Sunset Zoo at the Tallgrass Tap House as she uses her research interests to help us explore our self image and the image of clothing and fashion to really imagine the ecological impact of it all.

This month's Science on Tap is part of a larger series of events for Science Communication Week.  For more details on other events taking place during Science Communication Week, visit https://www.k-state.edu/scicomm/.
