Nerd Nite: "I Dig Your Bones: Adventures in Forensic Anthropology" (VANCOUVER)

***PLEASE NOTE:  These lectures tend to be popular.  Therefore, RSVPing for this event does not guarantee admittance nor that you will be seated with the group.  Doors open at 6:00; lecture starts at 7:00.  I will do my best to hold seats but will give them up at 6:30.***

Nerd Nite is a monthly event that strives for an inebriated, salacious, yet deeply academic vibe. We aim to entertain, educate, elucidate, enlighten, and other things that start with “e.” Be there and be square!

Cost: $8.00 suggested cover at the door. (See note below).  Come early if you want to order food and drinks and get a good seat! 

A forensic anthropologist is on the front lines of speaking for those who can no longer speak for themselves. At this event,Dr. Veronica "Nici" Vance from the Oregon State Police Forensic Laboratory will talk about how skeletal remains are found, how bones are analyzed, and how victims can be identified. Discover how the differences and similarities in our bodies are reflected in our bones and tissues, and how they can tell a story of how someone lived…and died. Hear about new technologies being used to solve cold cases and identify missing persons throughout the nation, and what you can do to help.

*A note on the suggested cover: Nerd Nite is completely supported by money collected at the door. We are committed to offering education opportunities to adults who want to learn, so if $8 is a hardship for you, please come anyway and donate what you can.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
