STEM Tavern @ Soaring Ridge Craft Brewers

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 start at 6 pm!


July 11: Ubadah Sabbagh “Lies of Our Eyes”

The only access point we have for the visual world is in the eyes, and they lie to us all the time. In this talk, we’ll cover some of the limitations in how we see, and the lies (and photoshopping) our brains do to compensate for them.

Ubadah is a neuroscience PhD student in the Translational Biology, Medicine, and Health program at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute (VTCRI). He is founder of the VTCRI Student Outreach Program and is a contributing writer to Scientific American, the Huffington Post & others.
