Description

Insights-Nerd-Nights

As a part of our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) education mission, we have teamed up with UTEP's Centennial Museum to bring a new event to the Border Region - Nerd Nights. Nerd Nights is a series of informative evening events designed to bring fun scientific talks and activities to your favorite local brewery, restaurant, coffee shop, or any other community hub. We will host a different Nerd Night at a different local establishment on a semi monthly basis.

&

Why Nerd Nights? We launched Nerd Nights because we wanted to find an entertaining way to learn something new while sharing good food and drink with new friends.



Introducing our 15th Nerd Night on Thursday, February 21st: Coffee


Do you start your day with buzzing cup of caffeine? 64% of Americans start their day with a cup of coffee, but how much do you know about your cup of joe? Does light roasted or dark roasted coffee contain more caffeine? How is this tropical plant transformed into to a billion dollar industry. Coffee is loaded antioxidants, but their effectiveness is can be drastically limited by different coffee preparation techniques. Join our next Nerd Night to learn more about America's favorite drug: coffee roasting, brewing, and science.
