Two scientists walk into a bar…
What sounds like the beginning of a rather bad joke is actually a fun program created by the Fleet Science Center in San Diego that LabX now brings to DC! During Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar®, local scientists enjoy something we all appreciate: a good conversation in a local bar. The scientists are easy to spot – just look for the sign that reads: “We are scientists. Ask us anything!”
A Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar® event took place June 27, 2019 in eight locations around the DC area:
|Denizens Brewing (Riverdale Park)||5:00 – 7:00||Chemistry/Microbiology|
|Wisdom||5:30 – 7:30||Neuroscience/Epidemiology|
|Capital Cider House||6:00 – 8:00||Mathematics/Food Microbiology|
|Denizens Brewing (Silver Spring)||6:00 – 8:00||Planetary Astronomy/Animals & Diseases|
|Right Proper Brewing Company||6:00 – 8:00||Chemistry (Art Conservation)/Physics|
|Shaw’s Tavern||6:30 – 8:30||Material Science/Biochemistry & Microbiology|
|The Royal||7:00 – 9:00||Water & Climate Science/Biochemistry & Science Policy|
|Pie Shop||7:30 – 9:30||Environmental Microbiology/Marine Biology|
No tickets or registration were required. People just showed up, grabbed a drink, and asked a scientist! You can read more about our earlier events in articles from the Washington Post and the San Diego City Beat.
We’d love to hear about the questions you asked and see photos of the fun, so please share your experience using #2scientists on social media and don’t forget to tag @labxNAS!
