Located in the Multi-Purpose room (in the lower level of the main branch), there will be several professors and researchers from the University of Michigan and other institutions with expertise in general fields of knowledge, available to answer your questions. Some of the topics will include particle physics, human cloning, climate change, the Big Bang, and more.
The purpose of this event is to not only acquaint people to scientific knowledge, but also to how that knowledge is obtained. We want people to ask these experts how theories are supported with experimentation, what hypotheses were tested and confirmed or falsified, and to what extent is there consensus amongst their colleagues about a given theory.
Participants talking with physicists Dr. Sean Tulin and Dr. Brian Nord

The Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics are having a meet-up on Saturday, June 8th from 4:00 to 7:00pm at the Colonial Lanes/Cubs A.C. restaurant. We’ll be in the back room located down the short hallway past the bar.
Our special guest will be Morgan Gustison, doctoral graduate student in the Psychology Department at the University of Michigan. She has studied non-human primates since 2007, and her experiences range from the wild to the laboratory. Morgan will provide a presentation about her research regarding lip-smacking by gelada monkeys, and its implication on non-human primate communication.
The first part of the event will be for general socializing and ordering refreshments. After which, there will be some announcements, and then we will start the presentation at approximately 4:30.
There will be a limit of 30 participants at this meetup.
