The Cheese Mites and Acrobatic Flies will be on the screen not in your cheese or wine I promise.

If you want to learn in a casual environment you can’t go wrong with Science Pub RVA. They host events throughout the year on topics that you had no idea even existed. The discussions are held in local drinking establishments so you can enjoy a refreshing beverage while getting a bit of knowledge in your cranium.

The next one is Wednesday, April 6th at C’est le Vin (15 North 17th Street).

From the Eventbrite Page:

An informal night about science and film. We’ll view a few, short, silent films from the early 1900’s and enjoy an open discussion with Dr. Oliver Gaycken who studies the links between scientific and experimental cinema.

5:15 – 6:00 Arrive when you wish, grab a seat, a drink, and/or some eats
6:00 – 7:15 Program and discussion

As always, we’ll have some social tables. So when you arrive, let us know if you’re flying solo & keen to meet other curious minds. In the meantime, use #SciPubRVA to get social with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

This Science Matters program for adults 18 and over is the final program of a three-part series on Seeing Machines: Humans and Technology offered in partnership with VCU’s Science, Technology & Society Program.

Maymont Garden Glow runs through Sunday, November 7th. The fee is $12 and if you take your time takes about 45-60 minutes. It does feel relatively small but still very much worth the trip. The most popular spots were the creatures and plants made with light near the Italian Garden and the music maker (near the mansion), in which you step on panel and are rewarded with sounds and light changing.

More information from Maymont.

Brighten your autumn nights on a wondrous light-filled journey through Maymont, in a NEW LOCATION this year showcasing the historic architecture and gardens around Maymont Mansion. The scenery will shine with dramatic light displays for an enchanting experience to delight guests of all ages. Marvel at the breathtaking illuminations of the Italian Garden and other landscapes, admire colorful sparkles and shimmers in the splashing fountain, and stroll among historic estate buildings and the nationally treasured arboretum that stand aglow. The event also will include food trucks (see schedule), the Glow Bar and Glow Shop on the Carriage House Lawn. Proceeds benefit Maymont; no refunds. For information, call 804-358-7166, ext. 322.
