WHAT: Science CafÃƒÂ©: Alternative Energy Solutions
WHERE: Conor O’Neill’s Traditional Irish Pub (in the banquet room), 318 South Main St., Ann Arbor
WHEN: Wednesday, April 18, 5:30-7:30PM
WHO: Dave Strenski presented by the University of Michigan Exhibit Museum of Natural History
Science cafÃƒÂ©s are informal gatherings in which scientists and audiences engage in lively discussion about current science topics, in a cafÃƒÂ© or bar setting. The idea originated in Europe and has rapidly spread in this country.
Audiences at the February cafÃƒÂ© selected this topic for the April program. University of Michigan geologist and climate change scientist Henry Pollack will describe the scope of the problems that global climate change presents, and give some context for what part of the solution alternative energy sources may play. Dave Strenski, a local expert on solar and other alternative energy sources, will speak specifically about solar power from a political and consumer perspective.
Hors d’oeuvres will be provided at 5:30 pm. The program will begin at 6PM and end at 7:30, and participants are welcome to linger afterwards. Participants must be 21 to purchase alcoholic beverages. Everyone is welcome and invited to purchase additional food and beverages.
This program is sponsored by the Exhibit Museum of Natural History, the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts Citizenship Theme Year, LSA Undergraduate Education, and Sigma Xi. Special thanks to our host-sponsor, Conor O’Neill’s Traditional Irish Pub.
