Science Café Las Vegas

Science Cafe Logo

Science Café Las Vegas, supported by the UNLV College of Sciences, is an organization geared towards bringing fascinating science discussions to the public of Southern Nevada.

We invite scientists to give short (~10-15 minute) presentations to the public at our fantastic venue, McMullan's Irish Pub, and then have roundtable discussions about anything you could possibly wish to know. Science Café Las Vegas is on the first Wednesday of every month from 6:30-8 p.m.

Come on down to the pub for lively science discussion, delicious brews, fantastic food, and a great time! Family friendly (under age 21 allowed).

Next Science Café: December 4

"RATS! A Tale of Conservation in a Human Modified Landscape"

The Colorado River provides water to tens of millions of people in the southwest for agriculture, recreation, development, and drinking. This has led to it becoming one of the most regulated and modified rivers in the world. I will briefly discuss some of the anthropogenic changes that have occurred along the river over the past century and then tell a small tale about the Colorado River cotton rat.

Arrive at 6:30 p.m. to dine and hang out.
Talk begins at 7 p.m.
