Event description

Description

Don't miss our final Science + Art happy hour this fall! Enjoy a brief science presentation, art demonstration & creation, and inspiring community conversations. NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!

TUESDAY, November 5th, 6-8 pm
"Fly Brain, Human Brain, How Different Are We?" with Dr. Chris Korey, College of Charleston Professor of Neurobiology AND "Right Brain, Left Brain, Art" with local artist Marielena Martinez.

The human brain is a mind-blowing network of neurons and chemicals, blood vessels and connective tissues, salts and electricity. Together they control our perceptions, thoughts and actions. Dr. Chris Korey's lab advances our understanding of how the nervous system works through the tiny brains of fruit flies. So how different are we? What are scientists learning thanks to these little guys and other model systems? Be prepared to be surprised. Chris leads a highly active undergraduate research lab that in true liberal arts fashion intersects across disciplines and departments, including the Center for Academic Performance & Persistence and Women’s & Gender Studies. “Ninjas vs. professors” -- you’d be forgiven if you confused Dr. Chris Korey for either. And in her own ninja-esque fashion, Marielena Martinez will introduce us to techniques to harness our left brain versus right brain skills for drawing. Think you don’t have a strong “artsy” brian...Wait till you see what your right side can create!

$15 LEARN, CREATE & TAKE HOME ORIGINAL ART. Students FREE and Educator discount. Great food and happy hour specials, including $1 off happy hour all event long and 10% evenings sales will be donated by Rutledge Cab Co. to help support more Community Science + Art! And wear your "I Voted" sticker for chance to win Cultivate t-shirt.

This is meant to be a fun, informal, community event for adults & youths. Drop-ins welcome, but get your tickets today to avoid lines and help us plan. Free Parking!
