I’m pleased to announce that our Manuel’s meetup in November will feature science education for the very first time. Our talented teachers and educators are a big part of what makes Atlanta a great science city!

Remember, you can follow us @sciencetavern on Twitter and on our Facebook page and that you can catch up with podcasts of select past meetups on iTunes.

See you at the Tavern,
Marc

A Model Science and Technology Internship Program for High School Students
We have to look no further than Wheeler High School in Cobb County to find a wonderful example of innovative science education in our own community. Please join us as teacher and coordinator Dawn Adams tells us about the model internship program that she has help to develop as part of the Center for Advanced Studies there.

Note: Our November Manuel’s event has been moved to the second Saturday to dodge the Thanksgiving weekend and the third-Saturday Atlanta Skeptics meetup.

"Rare Plants, Evolution and Climate Change" at the Atlanta Botanical Garden
This concluding talk in this year’s Science Cafe series at the Atlanta Botanical Garden features Jim Hamrick, Regents Professor of Plant Biology at the University of Georgia, discussing the impact of climate change on the evolution of rare plants in our region. It will also be an opportunity to enjoy the wonderful Fest-of-Ale and Scarecrows at the Garden exhibit taking place this month.

Bottlenose Dolphins and Legacy Contaminants Along the Georgia Coast
We are pleased to be able to work with the Georgia Aquarium in helping to promote their monthly "Science on Tap" series. This month the topic will be bottlenose dolphins along the Georgia Coast and how they have been impacted by decades-old chemical contaminants.

Sat, Oct 27, 7:00p
The Ethics of Making Hybrid Robots with Living Brains and Artificial Bodies
Steve Potter’s research group at the Neuroengineering Laboratory at Georgia Tech interfaces networks of brain cells to computers and robots to study the mechanisms of learning, memory and information processing. Steve will talk about his findings and will extrapolate on where he believes the field is heading in order to provoke a discussion about ethical implications of studies with semi-living animals.
