Free


Come join us this February for a special Astronomy on Tap event happening in conjunction with the International Astronomical Union's Women and Girls in Astronomy Month (https://www.inclusive-astronomy.org/women-girls-in-astronomy). We'll have talks from MSU locals, Dr. Laura Chomiuk and Dr. Deovrat Prasad, where we'll learn about the amazing contributions that women have made to astronomy and astrophysics -- including their contributions to our understanding of supermassive black holes!

As always this is a FREE event and we will have trivia questions, raffle prizes, and local scientists on hand to answer your burning astronomy and astrophysics questions. If you'll be showing up hungry, make time to grab a bite from one of your favorite Lansing establishments and bring it with!

If you need elevator access, please ask for assistance from the staff inside Taps 25.

See you soon!

Astronomy is even better with beer! Scientists, educators, writers, artists & more reveal how they explore the universe at a bar near you! Each FREE event features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. Presenters are from local research and educational institutions like Michigan State University. We have games and prizes to test your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who tag along for the beer.
