Astro On Tap-Seattle: Candid Cosmology!

May 29 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT

Get excited for Astronomy on Tap at Bickerson’s Brewhouse in Ballard at 7pm!
This month we are featuring two AMAZING Graduate Students from UW to chat about their fields of cosmology!
Each FREE Astronomy on Tap event features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. Most events have games and prizes to test and reward your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.
Be sure to follow us on Twitter (@AoTSeattle), Instagram (@aotseattle), TikTok (@astroontapseattle) and here on Facebook to get updates on future events!
Can’t make it to our event in person? Have no fear because you can always catch the live stream on our YouTube account or rewatch past favorites (https://www.youtube.com/@astronomyontapseattle2986/streams)!
