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: Wednesday, March 6

Dr. Alexis Billings, UNLV School of Life Sciences

"It's not what you said, but how you said it": Animal communication across sensory systems

Ever wonder why birds sing the loudest at the crack of dawn or how your dog knows you pet another dog and seems jealous? Animals have incredibly complex communication systems that span sensory systems at sensitivities way beyond human perception. Billings will discuss how animals use different sensory systems to communicate, why they communicate and how these communication systems evolved.

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