Join us for monthly informal discussions with scientists and experts on interesting science topics!
Manchester is taking part the international movement to bring scientists and non-scientists together to discuss science topics that are relevant to everyone. Science Cafes and Science Pubs are a popular way to become informed and to to engage with a scientist in an informal setting. The SEE Science Center is joining other NH Science Cafe programs in encouraging citizens throughout the state to discuss food science this fall.
Science on Tap will be held monthly at the Shaskeen Pub at 909 Elm St. Manchester NH.
Doors open at 5:30pm
The Shaskeen will donate a percentage of food and beverage sales at the events to the SEE Science Center.
How does it work? We provide the speaker and topic, you come enjoy food, drink and discussion.
Spread the word and continue the discussion: like the Science on Tap Facebook Page. #ScienceOnTapNH
Science of the Chocolatier
We'll discuss the chemistry and physics used by the chocolatier every day to craft chocolate creations.
Master Chocolatier Richard Tango-Lowy has been working with chocolate since 1996. He graduated with honors from Ecole Chocolat in Vancouver, and earned his Master Chocolatier designation at Ecole Du Grand Chocolat Valrhona in Tain L'Hermitage, France and also at Ecole Chocolat's Master Chocolatier course in Tuscany. While not creating at Dancing Lion Chocolate, his shop in Manchester, NH, Richard and his staff travel the world seeking unusual chocolate and cacao. He spent most of the 80's and 90's in electro-optics and superconductive electronics as part of TRW's Advanced Technology Division in Redondo Beach, CA.

Seeing is believing. Really? Psychobiology & Visual Perception
Our eyes capture signals from the environment - we see the world around us. How does this sensory information translate into perceptions and inform our understanding of the world? What does vision tell us about how the brain is configured? How does vision guide our interaction with the world? What are the implications of our ability to perceive motion, depth, or visual illusions?
We will explore these questions and more with John Sparrow, professor of psychology at the University of New Hampshire. Dr. Sparrow’s research explores the meaning of our visual perception of motion and depth and helps us to understand how our brain is configured to see the world.
