Ask a Scientist: Fun Nerdy Lectures and Q&A | SF

Ask a Scientist is a casual, educational, entertaining lecture series that takes place at cafes and other informal venues around San Francisco.

The talks feature an expert speaker on a scientific topic, a short presentation, and the opportunity to ask all those burning questions that have been keeping you up at night. No tests, grades, or pressure — just food, drinks, socializing, and conversation about the mysteries of the universe.

Who’s your (ancient) daddy? Did he walk upright? Could he control fire? Did he have a brow ridge that wouldn’t quit?! Then maybe he was a Homo of the erectus — not so sapient — type. Many new Homo erectus specimens have been added to the global repository in the past decades, and many new interpretations have followed. It is more than most can easily digest.

Come join professor Henry Gilbert, Assoc. Professor of Anthropology, CSU East Bay, discoverer of the Daka Homo erectus cranium, to have the Pleistocene evidence of your ancestors’ evolutionary history explained.

Free, but an RSVP is requested.
