On this night, UC Davis scientist Annaliese Franz will help us answer the question: can sustainable fuels be created from algae?

Franz is an Associate Professor in Chemstry, and she uses organic chemistry and chemical biology to develop new ways to produce biofuel for commercial use. She received her PhD in Chemistry from UC Irvine, and completed her postdoctoral training at Harvard University. A specialist in organic chemistry, Franz is also an active promoter of science education and women in science programs.

As always, expect this to be an interactive evening with hands-on games explaining science concepts—so you’ll be sure to have your hands full between the beer, tacos, and science. So grab a friend after work, and drink up some science with us at the WOW Science Museum!

Debuting in Fall 2014, Science Night Live is the latest “science pub talk” series joining the Sacramento evening entertainment scene. They’re held on the first Wednesday of each month, hosted by Nick Gray of the World of Wonders Science Museum. Browse our photo gallery and coverage of the inaugural SNL evening, and learn more about science cafés in our region at www.capscicomm.org/local-science-cafes.
