Suds & Science—The surprising connections around us in the natural (and unnatural) world.

We all recognize that individual habitats, populations, and even people are “connected”, in that what affects one may have profound and often unexpected implications in others. Dr. Drew Talley has been studying these connections in habitats ranging from salt marshes to desert islands. He will present examples of these connections, focusing on 30 years of research in Bahía de los Ángeles, Mexico, and show how this journey to understand these ecosystems has led to insights about critical connections not just between seemingly disparate habitats, but between different fields of science, between countries, and even between academic, public, and education sectors.

Please note: During this event, there will be photography and video recording. By attending this event you consent to and authorize without further compensation the use and reproduction of any film or photographs.


Date & Time: October 14, 6:30 to approx. 8 p.m.

Location: Wavelength Brewing Co, 236 Main Street, Vista, CA 92084

Cost: $5 online; $6 at the door. Beer is available for purchase, water available for free. Feel free to bring your favorite dinner! You can also order at one of the neighboring restaurants, who will deliver your order to Wavelength, such as URBN Vista and When Pigs Fly BBQ.


About Suds & Science:

Sometimes, the most interesting discussions occur over a beer or a glass of your favorite vino. (Bonus points if you can remember what was said the next morning!) That’s the concept behind Suds & Science, a monthly event that brings scientists face-to-face with the general public in a neighborhood bar. Each session kicks off with a short and enlightening presentation, after which the floor is open for discussion between the audience and the speaker. We cover a wide variety of topics that can range from the science of beer to superhero physics to the genius of genomes. We invite you to come sit back, sip your favorite beverage and participate in the discussion. Suds & Science puts the fun and spirit(s) back into learning.

Homeward Bound Project and Collab Beer Release

Wavelength Brewing Company and the Homeward Bound Project invite you to a science and beer collaboration! Join us as we welcome Dr. Jeanette McConnell, Chemist and STEM Education Advocate, to our tasting room to learn about Homeward Bound, Antarctica, and Dr. McConnell's brew day at Wavelength!

We teamed up with Dr. McConnell to help raise funds for her trip to Antarctica with the Homeward Bound project, brewing up an American Stout worthy of the trip, named Polar Night! The Homeward Bound program culminates in a 21-day intensive journey to Antarctica where our group of 100 women will work together to discuss and plan our action strategies to achieve their visions, empowering women in STEM to steer us towards a healthier planet, and a sustainable future for us all. Each pint and bottle of Polar Night sold helps send Dr. McConnell on this journey.

Our Friday Night Science Talks are 100% free and all ages, so bring the kids! If the skies are clear we'll break out our telescopes for a look into the cosmos! Cheers!

Suds & Science—New Discoveries in the Human Microbiome

PAID EVENT


On you and within you lies a vast and complex microbial community of bacteria, archaea, fungi and viruses, all important for players in human health and disease. This is the Human Microbiome. For years, microbes had a bad reputation, however, with more discovery, it’s becoming clear that microbes exist on a spectrum relative to human health. Some microbes are disease-causing pathogens, others are only harmful when they are in the wrong place or proliferate in great numbers, and others still are actually quite useful to the human body. Beneficial microbes play integral roles in human health, including aiding in digestion, producing essential vitamins and nutrients, fine-tuning our immune system and even manufacturing neurotransmitters that can affect our mood. Join Dr. Pedro J. Torres, Ph.D., in an open discussion about what we currently know about the role of the human microbiome in human health and disease.

Date & Time: July 8, 6:30 to approx. 8 p.m.

Location: Wavelength Brewing, 236 Main St, Vista, CA 92084

Cost: $5 online; $6 at the door. Food and drinks are available for purchase.

The Hell Up There presented by Galactic Journey

The Hell up There: How we found the Van Allen Radiation Belts, and why they matter.

A little over six decades ago, astronomers figured they had a good handle on what outer space would be like. But with the very first satellites launched during the International Geophysical Year (1958-9), it was clear that something very strange was going on up there.

Join space historian Gideon Marcus at the Wavelength at 8pm, June 7, 2019, for a presentation about the unprecedented weirdness that Van Allen and his team found, and its impact on the future of all spaceflight.

(and come early for a special musical performance by Wavelength favorite, Lorelei!)
