Science Pub Corvallis offers thought-provoking presentations along with good food and drink in an informal atmosphere. Interact with experts, ask silly questions and leave feeling more nourished and knowledgeable. No scientific background is required – just bring your curiosity, sense of humor and appetite! 

We are excited to return to in-person format, with a virtual option.  Register to secure your seat or get login information, and enjoy food and drink from Old World Deli or your own kitchen as you join viewers from across the state for these informative sessions.

But on others, it can breed feelings of depression, isolation, anxiety, and even hatred. So, how do we live in balance with social media in a complicated world? Come and join the discussion!
