What: 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. 

No ticket required -- Admission is FREE! Seating is limited, please arrive early. Presentation starts @ 7pm and runs 30min. plus Q-n-A after. Brews and beverages available for purchase provided by Civil Society Brewery Co

Dr. Joe Schumacher joined Max Planck Florida as a postdoc in the Fitzpatrick lab in November of 2014. His research combines imaging and behavioral techniques to investigate how learning impacts the function of neural circuits. Prior to joining the Fitzpatrick Lab, Dr. Schumacher earned his PhD in Neurobiology and Behavior at Columbia University. His dissertation examined the role of developmental vocal learning on the properties of auditory cortical neurons in songbirds.  He is also a founder and host of the Neurotransmissions podcast, in which leading neuroscientists from around the world share their perspectives on a life in neuroscience.
