Event Details

Start your day with a bit of science and coffee! Introducing Science with a Perk: short, informal programs, where there is no such thing as a dumb question, which encompass the topics of engineering, medicine and technology presented by leading experts, at a coffee house. It hardly matters what the topic is–if local scientists are working on it and they care about it, you will find it at Science with a Perk!

Scientists have long dreamed of mimicking photosynthesis and use the energy from sunlight to create fuel from CO2 and water. On December 12 we’ll learn how carbon dioxide might be made into fuel with Professor of Chemistry Jeff Sieler from the University of Southern Indiana.

Science with a Perk will take place regularly at the Honey Moon Coffee Company on the second Wednesday in June, September & December. The Honey Moon Coffee Company is located at 612 Weinbach Avenue (corner of Weinbach and Lincoln Avenues). The event starts at 8:30 AM and is admission-free.
