Science On Tap


The Greenwood Genetic Center is joining with other local educational institutions and business to bring science out of the laboratories and into the pub! Science on Tap is a program to share with our community some of the wonderful scientific work going on in our area. The public is invited for a 30-40 minute informal presentation by a local scientist followed by time for discussion and questions.

There is no charge to attend, you are only responsible for any food or drink you order. Contact Leta Tribble at GGC at (864) 941-4170 or lmt@ggc.org with any questions.
