Every month, Nerd Nite gathers smart speakers and a curious crowd, then to it a bar and some mingling. This month, speakers will discuss the great diversity of sex among living things and Japan’s rapidly changing e-scooter laws.

Thomas Hitchcock’s talk is titled “Sex Education: Reproductive Diversity Across the Tree of Life.”

Hirokuni Kim will present on “Anatomy of an E-Scooter’s Lithium Ion Battery.”

Drinks (both alcoholic and non) and light snacks will be available. Kids are also welcome at Nerd Nite.
