Location: High Noon Saloon (map)
“Not too cold to croak: frogsicles and other things”, presented by Larry Werner! He will be discussing how frogs and other vertebrates cope with the winter months– an appropriate topic as temperatures refuse to increase this spring!
Next is “There is a voice in your head? Surprising hidden differences in our inner experiences” with Gary Lupyan. Have you ever wondered why some people have an inner monologue, or why some people can smell ants? Gary will share some interesting insights about how this relates to evolution, culture, and how we do science.
Finally, Scott Olsen will be presenting “Furniture making as a hobby and social activity! (or, how to get compliments by making things)”. Scott says: “After witnessing other craft people, I decided to keep myself busy designing and building furniture for life. I work out of my garage making tables, desks, lamps, shelving units, beds, picture frames and more. In addition to the occasional compliment, I get usable high-quality items that I could not otherwise afford. If you’re interested in learning more about furniture, tools and woodworking skills and perhaps starting something like this yourself come see the presentation!”
