The Story Collider: "Love & Science"
Tuesday, February 5, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Scientists, as we all know, are cold, calculating and unemotional. They process data in a totally objective manner, and never, ever fall in love. It's possible we know that from movies.
Join us for an evening of true, personal stories about Love & Science. Come to the only show where you can hear people -- scientists, not-scientists, and half-scientists -- tell funny and heartbreaking stories about the role of science in their lives.
Please note this event is mixed seated and standing. Dinner reservations can be made by calling Drom at 212-777-1157 (there is a 2 item minimum per person at each table.)

About The Story Collider:
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
"The tones balanced stand-up funny and powerfully confessional... The crowd's reactions veered from belly laughs to pin-drop silence." -- Andy Beta,The Wall Street Journal
"The experience was incredibly cathartic, and having people come up to me afterwards and tell me how interesting and moving they found my story was as gratifying as any compliment I have ever received about my research." -- David Carmel, Nature
