NightLife - Halloween Edition! (October 31, 2013)
What's better than mixing science with music and liquor? Why, adding Halloween costumes, of course! On October 31, the California Academy of Sciences will be hosting Creatures of the NightLife, where they will uncover the science behind all of your favorite Halloween creatures. At some point during the evening I will give a 5-minute "lightning talk" on how a modern Dr. Frankenstein might use bioengineering techniques to recreate his classic monster. I'll also be in some sort of costume (not necessarily monster-related), so you won't want to miss it.
