A 2009 study found that 83% of Americans did not know a single living scientist by name. Around the March for Science in April of 2017 (on Earth Day), this statistic became a national conversation topic, eventually yielding the hashtag #actuallivingscientist, where «actual, living scientists» tweeted about their work.
To that end, a few early-career scientists, Scott and Hannah wanted to introduce folks in Chicago to actual, living scientists with Wonder & Skepticism, a new monthly event at the Empty Bottle. As early-career scientists, we are excited that the Empty Bottle is giving us this new platform to connect with the community. Outside the often-insular world of Academia, the goal is n...ot to talk about general ideas or scientific principles, but to invite folks to describe their own research and show us why they're so passionate about it.
In creating these event, we have forged a collaborative partnership with professional science educators. These expert interpreters will lead a thoughtful, engaging program with a mixture of presentations of scientific research, led by the scientists who do the research, and discussions which seek to engage the audience. We hope to feature between one and three scientists at each event, and have a panel discussion with the patrons in between talks. We hope to show folks that there are scientists in their community, and encourage everyone to connect over a beer.
