Here’s a new way to promote civic involvement — create a communal beer! That’s just one facet of a new three-event series, a partnership between Angel City Brewery and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles.
Citizen Science + Suds is a discussion series that explores questions like, can citizen science make Los Angeles a better city? Can we help save the world, or at least help craft a great crowd-sourced brew? Hear panelists share stories, data, and the real-world impact that results when the power of the people is harnessed. The series place outside the Museum, at the brewery, and takes a fresh look at science and community. Lively conversation and citizen science is the name of the game here.
The public can cast their votes for the beer’s ingredients and name by attending the events, or by participating on social media, via @NatureinLA on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. The voting deadline for ingredients will be Feb 9, and the deadline for a name for the beer will be Mar 9. Participants can taste the beer they helped create at the series finale on April 13.
