Astronomy on Tap at STEM Fest in NYC on Monday, January 19

We’re starting off 2015 with a very special Astronomy on Tap event at Under St Mark’s as part of STEM Fest!

We’re bringing our trademark accessible, engaging science presentations combined with eclectic entertainment, including, music games and prizes like Neil Tyson’s Trash Treasures (TM)! As part of STEM Fest on MLK Day we’ll honor the all-too-often unheralded contributions of under-represented minority scientists.

We’ll be donating proceeds from tickets to science-based projects on Donors Choose.

Coma Niddy presents SciTunes
Jupiter Joe presents Urban Astronomy
Kelle Cruz presents Women in Astronomy
DJ Carly Sagan & MC Tycho Brew-Ha-Ha astro-tain with music, games & prizes

COSMOS screenings at Videology in Brooklyn every month for 2015

It’s official – we’re returning to Videology in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to watch COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey!

Cosmos_spacetime_odyssey_titlecardEven if you devoured the series last spring, we guarantee you’ve never seen it like this before! Interact with the cosmos live with the lovable, irreverent scientists from Astronomy on Tap. Never content to let Neil Tyson have all the glory, we’ll share what we would have done differently (Drunk Astronomy, anyone?), reveal behind-the-scenes secrets, and generally celebrate the fleeting appearance of real science on network TV. Videology has a full bar with wine, draft and bottled beer, and a cocktail menu plus classic movie theater food like popcorn, nachos, pretzels, and hot dogs. In addition to special guest scientists for each episode we’ll have games, prizes, and Astro-tainment!

We’ll watch episodes sequentially (starting with episode 2) at 9:30 pm on the fourth Thursday of the month, except April when we mess things up for the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope and again in July. Mark your calendars and watch this space for more details!
