DIY Science: Tap into the Sun and Lower Your Energy Bill

A Science on Tap Event
Many people understand that the sun can be tapped to provide energy on a large scale in sunny locales, but what can you do for your house, your television or your coffee maker? Alice Bean, professor of physics and astronomy, will discuss how to convert solar energy into power at this science caf. Bring your questions about solar power and how power grids work at the local level. How Science on Tap works: Doors open at 6:30 p.m. at the Free State Brewing Company for each Science on Tap. At 7:30, moderators begin the program by introducing the topic. After a short break, the moderators encourage the crowd to ask questions about the subject. Come early for dinner, or join us just for the conversation.
