Science and its related fields have an enormous impact on our lives and our future. Yet, for many of us, understanding their complexity, is a challenge. In the fall of 2016 AIL initiated a new program, “Science Pub”, to create an informal “conversation" on timely topics in the sciences with experts from a variety of fields. Open to the public and held in a social setting, it has proved very popular. Join us this fall for the seventh season of Science Pub, another way to continue learning with AIL!

Taking  place in Galligan's Pub, just opposite the AIL classroom in Lethbridge Lodge, you are invited to begin the evening at 5 p.m. to enjoy the social setting, food & drink ( for purchase), and the company of fellow lifelong learners interested in the sciences.  The presentation begins at 6 p.m., followed by an informal Q & A.

Four presentations are scheduled for this fall’s Science Pub Series:

  • Wednesday, September 14 - Dr. Elizabeth Talbot / Emerging Infectious Diseases: What's Current and What's Next?
  • Wednesday, October 19 - Jeremy DeSilva, Ph.D. / One Small Step: How humans evolved to walk on two legs.
  • Wednesday, November 16 - Judy Hauck / Playing with DNA
  • Wednesday, December 14 - Rebecca Ohler, NH Department of Environmental Services / Electric Vehicles

Science Pub is open to the public, but due to space limitations, registration is required. Reservations open up two weeks in advance of each presentation. Details for each presentation along with a reservation link are contained in Noteworthy News, AIL's monthly e-newsletter. If you do not receive Noteworthy News, please contact the AIL Office at (603) 526-3434 to be placed on the distribution list.
