“Scientific Proofs” is a monthly gathering for grownups who like to geek out on science. Each month we have conversations about interesting, sometimes hot-button, science topics led by a variety of area scientists, leaders, and professionals. All events are FREE… minus the food and drinks!

Scientific Proofs is back for 2017 with new topics and a new venue!

We’ve given our monthly science-for-adults program, Scientific Proofs, a serious upgrade. Now held at Mellow Mushroom every month (before trivia), we’re adding great atmosphere, great food, and drink specials for all! The ingredients are simple: a relevant science topic, an expert in the field, you and a bunch of other people who like to geek out on science.
