Science Friday and Caveat present: Voyage To The Volcanoes!
Who knows what’s happening beneath the earth’s crust? Geophysicists, volcanologists, and disaster researchers, that’s who! Join Science Friday as we ponder what’s percolating deep in our planet—from quakes, to shifting plates, to volcanic updates.
Science Friday Book Club will gather ‘round the fire for a live interview with N.K. Jemisin, author of Hugo Award-winning book "The Fifth Season." Adventurers who attend will experience an evening of hands-on experiments with disaster researcher Mika McKinnon and the SciFri team, and see what it’s like to work near an active volcano with volcanologist Jess Phoenix. The producers of the American Museum of Natural History's Shelf Life will give us a behind-the-scenes look at the museum’s Experimental Petrology Lab, and volcanologist Dr. Janine Krippner will debunk the biggest volcano myths.
It’s gonna be magma-nificent! You’re gonna lava it!
Doors 6:30pm / Show 7:00pm
Tickets $15 adv / $20 door
Please note this is a mixed seated and standing venue. Adventurers who arrive early will get the best seats!
