What better Valentine for our group of science lovers than a calendar chock full of science-related events? It’s like a box of science chocolates. 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 our iTunes library.

Manipulating Light: From Design to Application
Join us for this Blended Research @ The Library panel discussion to learn how Georgia Tech researchers are synthesizing the materials that enable photonic devices (a combination of organic and inorganic nanomaterials) and fabricating the devices themselves, and see where these new devices are being applied.

Optogenetics: Controlling Neurons and Manipulating Behavior with Light *
Optogenetics is a new technique that is fundamentally changing what is possible in the field of neuroscience. Join us at Java Vino to hear Emory graduate student Kenneth McCullough discuss this revolutionary technology. This talk is way oversubscribed. We’ll be looking into the possibility of a repeat performance.

I Like the Way You Move: Locomotion in Sharks, Skates and Rays - Science on Tap at the Georgia Aquarium $
In this talk at the Georgia Aquarium, Laura Macesic Ekstrom, a biologist at Wheaton College, will explore how these graceful animals navigate their environments and what we've gained from understanding their ways - from sharkskin swimsuits to stingray robots and more.
