Science on Tap, the longstanding fixture of science-public interface in downtown Lafayette, is teaming up with Purdue's ESE Annual Symposium, EEE, and the Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant to present Science on Display. Headlined by Science on Tap's traditional seminar-style discussion from Dr. McCray, the event will extend into the evening, including displays by local and regional science artists (#SciArt) and refreshments throughout the evening.
