NEXT MONTH: Food Science Fair with Nerd Nite Detroit


Nerd Nite Detroit presents
Thursday, October 8

Join us Thursday, October 8 at 8pm for Nerd Nite Detroit’s first-ever Food Science Fair at COLORS Detroit.

This event will be just like your elementary school science fair (think vinegar and baking soda volcanoes), only with food and a few adult beverages. It will be a strolling affair, filled to the brim with interactive demonstrations and presentations on the neuroscience of taste, to cooking with liquid nitrogen, the nitty-gritty of making beer, and more.

Demonstrations and presentations by: Justin Riopelle, Brewmaster at Detroit Beer Co.; Nathan Glitman, Barista at Chazzano Coffee; Charlie Gibson, Outreach Coordinator at the Michigan Science Center; Thomas Fischer, Professor at Wayne State University Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience; Julie Lesnick, Assistant Professor, Wayne State University Department of Anthropology; and more!

After all of that learning, nerds can dance the night away to the beats of DJ Peter Croce, from 10pm-midnight.

Food will be provided by COLORS, and drinks available at the COLORS bar.

Tickets can be purchased here in advance or for $10 at the door.

Come explore the area’s expanding food and drink scene in new and nerdy ways, all while supporting COLORS’ community development and job training programs.
