Join your host Nick Gray, Education Program Coordinator at the WOW, for a night with a scientist! This month’s event plays on the “Rock the Café” theme promoted by WGBH NOVA, and features Kurt Brumeister, Professor of Geological & Environmental Sciences at the University of the Pacific. “I am also what you might call a ‘dirty boots’ kind of geologist,” he says on his website. “I love being in the field. When away from campus, I’m usually working in one of my current research areas: the Desolation Wilderness Area of the central Sierra Nevada, upstate New York, and western Ireland.” And as always, Science Night Live has a cash bar for beer and wine purchases and a food truck for dinner and snacks, so you won’t go thirsty or hungry throughout the evening.

Contact the museum for directions and more information, at (209) 368-0969, or

Each month, Professor Jared Shaw with the UC Davis Department of Chemistry hosts the Davis Science Café, featuring scientists who are studying some of today’s cutting edge topics. This month, Nick Gray plays guest host to two speakers: Professors John Conway and Markus Luty of the UC Davis Department of Physics. Both Luty and Conway are particle physicists curious about the origins of matter and the universe—you’ll be able to ask your science questions from real-life particle men! Invite a friend, and get here early to grab a seat at the G Street Wunderbar. Let’s drink to science!
