Gross Science: Louis Sorkin and Gene Kaplan at the "Geeking Out" Lecture Series
I consider myself a pseudo-scientist. I watch a lot of science shows on TV. Once upon a time I got a â€˜five’ on my Biology Advanced Placement test. I even got a scholarship in biology for college. Alas, I was making more jokes in lab than getting experiments done and I abandoned my science dreams for more theatrical pastures.
For those of us with dashed hopes of science grandeur there is a monthly free lecture series called â€œGeeking Out.â€ This month’s Geeking Out is guaranteed to satisfy the gross side of your science mind. Hosted by Gelf Magazine, this Thursday will feature a talk with Gene Kaplan author of What’s Eating You? (that’s about parasites, people) and Louis Sorkin, an expert inâ€¦.wait for itâ€¦.BEDBUGSâ€¦at the American Museum of Natural History. EEEEEEEEW!
Admission is FREE to this geeky-grotesque event and drinks will be available.
