Looking for an opportunity to learn science, drink beer, and support local politics at the same time?

On Monday, October 16th, join us for a night of lectures and discussion around some of the pressing scientific issues of our day. Our scientists will update you on the latest research on artificial intelligence, alternate energy, and obesity while you ask us questions and drink a few beers. All proceeds will go to David Reid, Wendy Gooditis, and Tia Walbridge, candidates we are supporting for State Delegate

From the days of Ben Franklin, scientists have shaped public policy in America. Throughout our nation’s history, science has been called upon to improve public health, to protect the environment, and to drive economic development. These days, however, evidence-based policy making seems to far too often be neglected in favor of special interests. This election cycle we are throwing our support behind a number of local Virginia delegates who are committed to using evidence and reason to guide their decisions and legislation should they be elected. These delegates are David Reid, Wendy Gooditis, and Tia Walbridge -- all of whom we have communicated with directly and have pledged their dedication to evidence-based policy.
