Food Science Fair Nerd Nite Detroit October

Join us Thursday, October 8 at 8pm for Nerd Nite Detroit’s first-ever Food Science Fair at COLORS Detroit.

This event will be just like your elementary school science fair (think vinegar and baking soda volcanoes), only with food and a few adult beverages. It will be a strolling affair, filled to the brim with interactive demonstrations and presentations on the neuroscience of taste, to cooking with liquid nitrogen, the nitty-gritty of making beer, and more.

Demonstrations and presentations by: Justin Riopelle, Brewmaster at Detroit Beer Co.; Nathan Glitman, Barista at Chazzano Coffee; Charlie Gibson, Outreach Coordinator at the Michigan Science Center; Thomas Fischer, Professor at Wayne State University Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience; Julie Lesnick, Assistant Professor, Wayne State University Department of Anthropology; and more!

After all of that learning, nerds can dance the night away to the beats of DJ Peter Croce, from 10pm-midnight.

Food will be provided by COLORS, and drinks available at the COLORS bar.

Come explore the area’s expanding food and drink scene in new and nerdy ways, all while supporting COLORS’ community development and job training programs.
