Next Event: Date To Be Determined

​Thirst for Science is a monthly event held in popular South Miami locations where scientists explain their research in an accessible way to a general audience. Each event features a different scientist who will walk the group through their work, field questions from the audience, and relax with the attendees. All events are open to the public, so please stop by and enjoy!

Events are typically hosted on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Information about upcoming and past events will be updated on this site. Find us on Facebook at ThirstForScience and on Twitter @thirst_science. For additional questions please feel free to reach out to your hosts:
