Science on Tap Is Back

Georgia Aquarium’s next adults-only science lecture series, Science on Tap, will be Tuesday, February 11th with husband and wife team Dr. Al and Trish Dove. This very special Science on Tap will play the seasonal Valentine’s theme by exploring the weirdest, wildest and most out-there mating behaviors of marine animals. We’ve rated this R for adult content.

Join us for a reception with light hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine from 6:00pm – 7:00pm with the presentation beginning at 7:00pm. Following the talk, there will be time for Q&A. Come mingle, share some libations, laugh and learn!

This event is $10.00 and does not include General Admission. The full cost of your ticket goes directly to supporting Georgia Aquarium’s Research and Conservation initiatives. Space is very limited. Please reserve your seats ASAP to secure your entrance into this exclusive lecture series.
