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 “...like 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!
Doors open at 6:30, and speakers start at 7pm.
So show up, have a drink, meet other nerds, and learn a bunch of awesome new junk!
This month's speakers:
James Mann: Coroner's Court
Susan Starr: What is in your Brains: Why Zombies are Malnourished
Katherine Prater: Fear + Brains ≠ Zombies
Join us as we venture into dark and shadowy territory with mysterious deaths, talk of zombie and their favorite food — brains!
We’re lucky to have two NNA2 alumni back with us this month:
Historian James Mann walks us through the “Coroner’s Court,” a practice used long ago to investigating deaths which occurred under murky circumstances.
Anatomist Susan Starr fills us in on just what’s in your head — and why brain-eating zombies would probably be malnourished!
Adding to the Halloween-y set, RELATE-r and researcher Katherine Prater will take us through the tingling, sweating, and heart-racing topic of fear and the brain — even toughing on just how scientists examine it in the lab.

AADL is sponsoring this month's event, so there will be NO COVER!
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!
