Event Description

Science On Tap happens every third Thursday of the month, featuring a new topic each week. It begins with an informal 15-minute talk and is followed by a lively group discussion.

James Privette, operations lead for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) programs at Los Alamos National Laboratory, will join us to discuss how the Lab is working to counter the risk UAVs pose to national security. As the use of drones increases in popularity, so increases their threat to the nation's assets. Los Alamos National Laboratory is closely studying these risks and utilizing emerging technologies to help mitigate them.

This installment of “Science on Tap” will be held on Thursday, May 21, starting at 5:30 PM at the UnQuarked Wine Room at 145 Central Park Square in downtown Los Alamos, New Mexico.

Science On Tap happens every third Thursday of the month, featuring a new topic each week. Sponsored by the Los Alamos Creative District and hosted by the Bradbury Science Museum, this series begins each evening with an informal 10 to 15-minute lecture followed by a lively group discussion. “On Tap” is a way for people to get out and about in the community, learn something new, and meet people with similar interests. Admission is free and open to the general public.
