What we're about

See our Nola Skeptic Blog (https://nolaskepticcommunity.blogspot.com/p/science-news.html)

This is NOT a group for anyone who hates science. This is a group for folks who want a fun, sociable group of like-minded people to just learn and chat about the latest science and skepticism.

We will be presenting top-notch scientists (possibly grad students or post-docs), but they will present their work in a down-to-earth, fun, understandable way. There will always be time for Q&A. We may also have discussion panels.

Some of our meetings are in pubs, but alcohol consumption is NOT required! All science topics are open, such as physics, space exploration, biology, medicine, evolution, geology, STEM, education, YOU NAME IT!!

Currently, Nola Skeptics in the Pub (https://www.facebook.com/NolaSkeptics/)usually meets third Wednesdays at Nola Brewery (http://nolabrewing.com/)at 7 pm and Swampy Science Social Club (https://www.facebook.com/swampyscience/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel)meets at Blue House (http://thebluehousenola.com/), usually on the last Wednesday of the month, at 7 pm. We provide some refreshments, as well.
