We had a great turn out for our museum Pub Talk at Dave and Busters in October hosted! Paleontologists Dr. Matt Lamanna and Dr. Abby West entertained a crowd of about 60 with a talk about their recent expedition to Antarctica as part of the AP3 Project. Their presentation touched on dinosaurs, evolution, how to find fossils, and even very friendly penguins. Matt and Abby also answered questions and brought fossils so that those in attendance could examine and even touch real fossils found in Antarctica. Guests enjoyed some complimentary appetizers and watched the new documentary “Expedition Antarctica,” which will be coming soon to the Earth Theater! Thanks to Matt and Abby and all who came out for a great night of science and fun. For more events like this, follow our museum Meetup page!
Pub Talks is a public relations initiative that brings our science out of the museum and into the public. Different scientists are featured throughout the year at various pubs around the beautiful city of Pittsburgh.
