June 26 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

It’s about to get real colorful in the Alamo Room at Wilmington Brew Works! Get your tickets now for another fantastic night featuring three supremely nerdy talks. Wearing lots of bright colors to this one is strongly encouraged. Read on to learn more about this month’s presentations and speakers! Must be 21 or older to attend this event.

In Defense of Color by Pat Wittwer

Have you ever wondered why the houses in your neighborhood look the same? Does it bother you that cars are almost always black, white, or gray? There is a war on color and expression and this talk is the first step to joining the right side: in defense of color.

Patrick Wittwer has worked in cultural and tourist attractions for over 20 years. Currently, Pat is the Visitor Experience Manager at the Edelman Fossil Park and Museum and Vice President of the Visitor Experience Group. ​ Outside of the museum world, Pat lives in Delco with his wife and son and enjoys camping, hiking, photography, word games, and is probably the biggest Muppet fan you’ll ever meet.

Astronomy, Spectroscopy, and You by Jerry Acord

What is the nature of light, how it can tell us about the properties and composition of things, including some very, very distant things, and that, in the end, we’re all made from stars.

Once upon a time a professional astronomer with Ph.D. in Astronomy from University of Wisconsin, Jerry moved into IT way back when the web was shiny and new.

The Birds & The Bees (But With Sharks) with Jess Myers

The ins and outs of shark sex, why male sharks have two claspers, and how to identify egg cases.

Jess Myers is a marine scientist who has a passion for sharing her passion with others. She had spent years assisting with shark tagging programs and studying plastic pollution in our oceans.
