Science on Tap, Untapped Ruins Everything

    • php8eyshz

Does the parallel universe theory really explain the Upside Down on Stranger Things? Is Tyrannosaurus vision really based on movement like in Jurassic Park? Is Bones right? Can a forensic anthropologist really tell if a bone is real just by licking it?

Representations of science in pop culture are often way more fiction than fact. With so many white lab coats, daring anthropologists, and crime-solving teams, it can be hard to sort out what’s real and what’s just for entertainment. But don’t worry! Your friendly Science on Tap organizations are here to help.

Join us for a lively and hilarious night as we pay homage to our favorite portrayals of science onscreen. We’ll share clips from our favorite TV shows and movies and explain the real science behind scenes that range from the brazenly bad to the surprisingly accurate.

Cosplay encouraged! Show up as your favorite TV or film character doing science and get a chance to win awesome prizes.  

Tickets for this event are $10 and include tasty snacks. There will be a cash bar.

Please note: The Penn Museum galleries will be closed during this event.
