Scientific Proofs

“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 area scientists, leaders, and professionals. Held at Mellow Mushroom St. Matthews every month (before trivia). All events are FREE… minus the food and drinks!

Notes from the Field

Scientific Proofs welcomes two environmental scientists to share their stories of work from exotic locales around the globe. First, we welcome back Steve Yanoviak (our very first Proofs presenter from 2015!) with an encore presentation on his research in the rainforests in Central and South America. Hear anecdotes of Steve’s interactions with lightning, monkeys, and snakes! From the treetops we then venture to the Sea of Cortez and the swamps of Florida where John Wise studies pollution, its effects on whales and alligators, and how these animals can be models for studying certain cancers.
