Science Cafe: The Science of Monster Myths

  • Thursday, October 31, 2019
  • 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Unknown phenomena have inspired some of our oldest myths and legends (think of Zeus’s lightning). Join us to trace the sinister history of three modern Halloween monsters with a modern scientific eye to discover the origins of witches, vampires and zombies. Each story has a real life connection to a food that can be part of a Halloween dinner!
