Event Details

Banner for Sweet Science!


Indulge in some post-Halloween sweets and learn from leading researchers as they speak about their latest projects. Tour around the MIT Museum meeting researchers at the top of their fields while enjoying candy and cocktails themed to the speakers' topics!


Enjoy Milky Way candy while Professor Sara Seager - a 2013 MacArthur Fellow - discusses her studies of exoplanets; learn about the Earth's crust with Professor Oliver Jagoutz as you savor Pop Rocks; and find out how graduate student Nikolai Begg develops minimally invasive surgical tools (while sampling Life Savers). Finally, learn about a variety of robots, including robotic fish with Professor Youcef-Toumi, self-assembling robots with research engineer John Romanishin, and the BigEye with graduate student Sangok Seok! This is trick-or-treating, MIT Museum-style! Costumes are encouraged.

Ages 21 and up. Cash bar. Admission includes two drinks.
