Science Cafe program looks at 'Smell: the Secret Sense'
The Science Café resumes Monday, Feb. 4 at 6 p.m. with “Smell: the Secret Sense,” presented by Tom Eiting, a graduate student in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology (OEB). The program takes place at the Esselon Café in Hadley.
Eiting will spotlight his work exploring how the sense of smell works in mammals, from the anatomy of nasal passages to how smell is perceived. All Science Café events are free and designed for a public audience. Light snacks will be provided and drinks will be available for purchase.
The Science Café series is organized by graduate students in the OEB program and is supported by the Society for the Study of Evolution, the Massachusetts Academy of Sciences, OEB, and the UMass Natural History Collections. Organizers strive to bring engaging conversations about science to broad audiences by hosting Science Café events throughout the year.
