Science Café welcomes people who might not normally get involved in scientific discussions. This open event is not an ordinary lecture, it’s a casual and interactive conversation with a scientist on a particular topic.
Presented by the scientist-members of ACESS (Akron Council of Engineering and Scientific Societies) and University of Akron Chemistry Club
Presented by Ray Stewart, MA, Ohio Wetlands Association
Vernal Pools are seasonal wetlands that normally appear in wooded areas and fill with a variety of life forms in late winter through spring. Many organisms only live in or are dependent on vernal pools to complete their life cycle. Vernal pools are rich in hidden wonders waiting to be discovered.
Presented by Dr. Margo Erme
Beware and take care, the dreaded flu season is upon us! Join Dr. Margo Erme, retired Summit County Public Health medical director and communicable disease epidemiologist, as she examines the spread of influenza, how vaccines can help and what can happen when a particularly nasty case takes hold of a population, like the 1918 influenza pandemic.
