If you are excited by science - but not necessarily a science professional - and you live in the Atlanta area, then the Atlanta Science Tavern is the meetup for you.
Our program is centered on a monthly meeting at Manuel's Tavern, which features a speaker - typically a scientist from a nearby university or research center - who presents his or her work to a smart general audience, people interested in learning more, not only about recent scientific discoveries, but also about any impact these discoveries might have on matters of public concern.
In addition, we organize social outings and field trips that provide opportunities for our members to experience science as it expresses itself in the community at large. Recently we have extended our program to include a Rathskeller track, a series of informal meetups which encourage small-group interactions. This continues the tradition of the International Science Café movement which inspired Josh Gough and Carol Potter when they launched the Atlanta Science Tavern in 2008.
Please take a look at our calendar of past and upcoming events to learn more about who we are and what we do. If you haven't already, consider joining our meetup and becoming an active member.
