Science on Tap

Drink up, Get Smart. 

This is a 21+ event series. Please arrive early to secure a seat and a brew! 

Modeled after "Science Cafes", Science on Tap is the only place in Palm Beach County where for the price of a cup of coffee, a quality craft beer, or a smooth glass of wine, anyone can come to discuss the latest trends in science and technology with a world-class scientist. With a motto to ‘drink up – get smart,’ you know you are in for a casual-education session, as the goal of the program is for guests to have fun while learning a little bit more about everyday curiosities. 

Upcoming sessions:

April Guest Speaker: Robert DePalma, Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology for The Palm Beach Museum of Natural History

Where: Civil Society Brewing; 425 Kanuga Dr, West Palm Beach, FL 33401

When: Thursday, June 20th, 2019 @ 7pm

Topic: TBA

About the guest speaker: After receiving his Bachelor's degree in Geology from Florida Atlantic University in 2007, DePalma returned to the University of Kansas, where he had previously completed a portion of his undergraduate work, and earned a Master's degree in geology in 2010. While at UK he also managed the University's paleontology laboratory and conducted both fieldwork and laboratory research. DePalma's expeditions to the Hell Creek Formation in South and North Dakota have yielded many rare specimens, including diverse assemblages of dinosaur bones, rare Cretaceous bird and mammal fossils, and the first insects ever recorded in Cretaceous amber from South Dakota. Current projects include work on a new species of maniraptoran dinosaur, a new species of primitive amphibian, research of flying reptiles and the evolution of birds, the development of a new, entirely biologic technique for fossil preparation, and field expeditions to various locations. He has appeared in a number of dinosaur-related episodes for National Geographic Channel.
