    Kids were great, and exhibits were fine. The kids were gatherd around the reptiles. Yerkes folk were wonderful with microscope slides and such. I was not able to find any other Science tavern folk. What should I have done?

      Kevin - For public events likes this which the Science Tavern doesn't produce and for which there is no plan for socializing stated in the event description, Science Tavern attendees are on their own as far as meeting up. The comment section is a way to organize this in advance. Sorry for the confusion. - Marc

    The booths run by students and others were great. Loved seeing the reptiles. But the NASA speaker was the best of all!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
