Every month, we gather some smart speakers and a curious crowd, add a bar, and create something unique. This month, we’re happy to welcome two speakers bringing solutions to big challenges.
September is the 100th anniversary of one of the most significant events in Tokyo’s history, the Great Kanto Earthquake. Seismologist Christine Houser will be here to discuss it and help us prepare for the future. We hear there will be a raffle for emergency gear, too!
But that’s not all — our second speaker, materials scientist Fabio Lisi, will be sharing his work on new tests to help tackle the hidden challenges posed by asymptomatic sexually transmitted infections.
Drinks (both alcoholic and non) and light snacks will be available. Eat, drink and be square-y! Kids are also welcome at Nerd Nite.
You can also find our event information on Facebook and Meetup; check the sidebar for all of our social media and mailing lists. Help us promote Nerd Nite by signing up on our event listings and sharing our social media posts!
