Science Outreach for Adults - 2 Scientists Walk into a Bar

Continuing in this program, Bob and colleague Mike Burkart were at Bar Basic on 10th St. downtown on June 25, supporting this successful science outreach program for adults, young and old, in our community. #2scientists

Bob participated in a new approach to science outreach - "2 Scientists Walk into a Bar". Organized by the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park, on Thursday March 20, 2014 50 scientists deployed to 25 bars across San Diego County to speak to the public - "I'm a Scientist, Ask Me Anything". Bob was at the Regal Beagle, 3659 India St., San Diego from 7 - 9 PM. #2scientists

Continetti Lab Joins CAICE
