NN Vancouver – Try This at Home: Science Experiments Using Stuff You Already Own

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

When: Wednesday, July 9, 2014, doors at 6:00pm, event at 7:00pm 

Where: Kiggins Theater, 1011 Main Street, Vancouver, WA

Cost: $8.00 online advance tickets, $10.00 suggested cover at the door

Food & Drink: Beer, wine, pizza slices, popcorn, and snacks available at the Kiggins theatre.

Note for Meetup Members: This event is also open to the public. We'll have signs up for you to meet and sit together, or you're welcome to sit wherever you'd like.


Science demonstrations are a good way to learn about and explain how scientific processes work, but doing them can also be a lot of fun and make you look really cool. Graduate students Katie Payne, Nicholas Day, Justin Dunlap, Elliot Mylott, and other members of PSU’s Science Outreach Society will show us how to make some of your household items fluoresce, how to make color changing dyes, and how to make plastic wrap out of your old CDs. Come check out some of the cheapest and readily accessible demos that can help you not only sound smart, but look smart too.

*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.
