proofs events

“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.

Hike For Your Lives

Flash forward!
It’s a warm July afternoon…
You’re hiking through Jefferson Memorial Forest…
You hear a rustling in the underbrush…
A threatening “hiss…”

Think fast! Luckily you went to Scientific Proofs in March, and now know everything you need to know about local snakes and what to do if you encounter one in the wild. That’s right, March 29th, join Kentucky Science Center at Mellow Mushroom in St. Matthew’s, as we get inside the science of a snake bite. Dr. George Bosse will walk through the first aid and treatment for encounters with venomous snakes indigenous to Kentucky. Yes, Kentucky.

Dr. Bosse is Medical Director of the Kentucky Poison Control Center of Norton Children’s Hospital and Professor of Emergency Medicine at University of Louisville School of Medicine. Dr. Bosse received his undergraduate degree from Duke University, and MD from University of Louisville School of Medicine. He is board certified in medical toxicology and emergency medicine.
