Nerd Nite Ann Arbor: August 21, presented by AADL at LIVE 102 S First St.

Thursday August 21, 2014: 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm -- LIVE (102 S 1st Street)

This event is intended for Adults
This event will be recorded

For the last year and a half, crowds have gathered each month in the early evening - in bars and venues around Ann Arbor. Around 7pm, it begins: three boisterous speakers geek out up front. What is this? Some secret club?

Nope! It's Nerd Nite Ann Arbor! And it's open to anyone and everyone who loves to learn or share what they love.

For the uninitiated, Nerd Nite (NN) has been described as “ the Discovery Channel™…with beer!” Sounds fun, right? It is! NN is held monthly in 70+ cities, giving several folks the opportunity to give 18-21minute fun-yet-informative presentations across all disciplines. Imagine learning about everything from the science of the Simpsons to the genealogy of Godzilla. Fun stuff!

The next Nerd Nite will be Thursday, August 21 at LIVE (102 S 1st St.). Doors open at 6:30, and speakers start at 7pm.

This edition will have a special science focus - stay tuned for an updated lineup!

So show up, have a drink, meet other nerds, and learn a bunch of awesome new junk!

Want to see past topics and a little more info? Check NNA2's site.

AADL is sponsoring this month's event, so there will be NO COVER (usually $5)!

Mark your calendars and spread the word! Any and all nerds (and non-nerds!) who love learning and having a great time are welcome to join us!

Nerd night!

I missed last month's nerd night because I was on vacation. I'll be more careful next summer scheduling my vacation to make sure I don't miss it. And it sounds like I missed a really good one.

Just got an email with the lineup for Nerd Nite:

Join us for the August installment of Nerd Nite for talks on topics that range from our human cells to trees to teeny satellites...

Intrigued by the human body? Katie Parzych will clue us in on the process of autophagy – a recycling process that our cells use to stay healthy. Curious about the natural world beyond the human body? Kirsti Ashworth gives us the lowdown on chemicals produced by trees, and how they might relate to air pollution, and the related “nefarious” world of plant communication. And, if you’re more interested in something above and beyond the earth – Michael Kirkhart, amateur satellite developer/operator tells us all about a tiny satellite called $50SAT!

Katie Parzych – Autophagy: How Cells Recycle to Survive
Michael Kirkhart – $50SAT: 3 hams and a university in Kentucky on their quest to build the world's smallest functioning satellite
Kirsti Ashworth – Trees - Heroes or Villains in the Battle Against Air Pollution?



Nerd night

This event looks like a lot of fun. I've never been to LIVE. Can't wait to check it out.


Ya gotta love 'em.
