What makes a talk about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) even more entertaining? Why, beer of course!

Join our monthly STEM Tavern that features a fascinating science presentation plus good beer. For each beer sold at STEM Tavern, Soaring Ridge Craft Brewers will make a donation to the Science Museum of Western Virginia! A food truck will also be on hand.

If you are interested in more information about the STEM Tavern programming, you can contact Sarah Van Zele at  svanzele@smwv.org or 540.342.5718.

Join us on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 5:30 pm at Soaring Ridge Craft Brewers (523 Shenandoah Ave.). Talks begin at 6:00 pm!

May 9: Derek Kellogg “You Don’t Know Me: the misunderstood termite” 

A termite is an insect with which most people are familiar. We all ‘know’ at least something about termites… typically something we don’t particularly like about them. But how much of what we think we know is actually true? Pull up a seat and join us for a closer look at something that has been under our noses the whole time.

Derek is the Scientific Director of the museum. He joined the Science Museum in November 2012 to oversee the opening and operation of the museum’s Butterfly Garden and other living collections. In 2015, his role expanded to include oversight of the Education and Exhibits departments.
