Join us for Sac Science Distilled- You’ll hear short, idea-centered talks from local experts in the sciences. After the talk, we’ll have a lively discussion that brings science into context for everyday life.

Our speakers this month will be Dr. Jay Cummings (CSUS Mathematics) and Dr. Lauren Camp (UC Davis Vet Med Teaching Hospital). They’ll be speaking about all things spooky- Jay on the mathematics of magic tricks, and Lauren on the creepy crawly worms that live around us.

We’ll also have a SCIENCE COSTUME CONTEST with prizes! Dress up as anything you like, as long as you can tell us how it relates to science.
