Putting Science on Tap: Science Café comes to the Plymouth Area

PLYMOUTH — On Tuesday, October 15 at 6pm, Biederman's Deli and Pub will be hosting the first Science Brew Café in partnership with Plymouth State University's Center for the Environment and Environmental Science and Policy Department.

Science Cafés are unique. They are designed for people to learn about science and meet scientists in a comfortable, community setting. Eveyone is invited to come grab some food and a drink and be ready to learn and ask questions in a casual setting. Researchers will speak briefly about their work and the majority of time will be a conversation between the audience and the scientist.

The topic on tap for the first Science Café is "Sensing New Hampshire's Streams and Rivers." Mark Green, Ashley Hyde, and Errin Volitis from Plymouth State University will provide an overview of their work studying rivers and streams in New Hampshire. Clear mountain streams flowing from the White Mountains and powerful industrial rivers are hallmarks of New Hampshire's rich natural beauty and cultural heritage. While our waters are of exceptional quality in most cases, there are still water quality and quantity issues. Water sensors have recently been deployed in streams and rivers across New Hampshire (including several in the local area) to better understand water quantity and quality.

This effort, which draws on community volunteer monitors, has been active for one year. The conversation will focus on what is being observed and learned, and how it may help water resources management in the region. The conversation can focus on water resources in central New Hampshire as well as resources across the State and in the region.

Food and drink can be ordered from the menu, admission is free.

The state currently has ongoing Cafés in Portsmouth, Nashua, and Lebanon.

Support for this event is also being provided by NHEPSCoR and the National Science Foundation.
