Science Café Las Vegas

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).


Virtual Speaker: John Mercer, UNLV Department of Kinesiology and Nutrition Sciences

"Physics and Physiology of Endurance Sport: Swim, Bike, and Run"

Dr. Mercer will talk about the research he has done that blends biomechanics and physiology to understand endurance performance. Specifically, he will discuss a broad scope of research on swimming, biking, and running with the perspective of how athletes can go faster and/or farther. This work will include a description of core temperature during swimming in warm water, vibration of bike wheels during cycling, and the importance of stride frequency during running.

The virtual presentation will be presented via Zoom.
