When: Wednesday, May 23, at 8:30 pm. Dozens of top scientists and outstanding research students from the Weizmann Institute of Science will be in 51 bars in Tel Aviv to talk with the patrons. Their subjects will be open scientific questions that are being addressed on the cutting edge of world science.
Why are we so different from one another? Why in a democracy (a government of the people) are the people not really in control? Why does evolution sometimes need “a little help from its friends?” Why did I decided to “dance my doctorate?” Why do we need friends? Why won’t we be settling Mars anytime soon? Why does a zebra wear pajamas and how does this tie into brain research? Why do we humans still have noses, and how does this affect our relationship with the world? Why does G-d play dice with the world? Why is a crow like a writing table?
Science and the city: The Weizmann Institute of Science has a mission to share scientific knowledge and the excitement and adventure we experience when we expand the boundaries of human understanding. This is the ninth time that Weizmann Institute scientists have ventured into the Tel Aviv scene, and the 13th such event in the country. The first of its kind in Israel, the “On Tap” formula has since been copied by numerous organizations in Israel and around the world.
Science on Tap is organized in conjunction with Time Out Tel Aviv, the HEMDA school in Tel Aviv and Migdal.
*All conversations will be conducted in Hebrew.
