Science Cafe: Honeybees ~ Futurepalooza at MSU ~ “Bach on the Bakken” ~ Chef Rosie on Vinegarposted on 09/05/2013
Thursday, September 5 –The Science Café is back. The new season gets underway next Tuesday, September 10th in Stokers Basement, Hotel Donaldson, with the topic “Collapse: How honeybees are dying and what we can do about it.” Joining us with a preview is the presenter, Julia Bowsher, assistant professor of biological sciences at NDSU. ~~~ Futurepalooza is coming to Minot State, attracting high school students from around the state. Experts from a wide variety of career fields will be present, as will 47 post-secondary schools from around the region. And there will be plenty for the students to do, since Futurepalooza coincides with MSU’s “Nonstock,” an annual live arts and music festival, which recruits visiting artists of international acclaim for a student-participatory experience. Joining us is Derek Van Dyke, admissions counselor and Futurepalooza organizer; and commenting on Notstock is Bill Harbort (art professor). ~~~ “Bach on the Bakken” is a pipe organ tour coming soon to four western North Dakota cities. The tour features organist Bill Tweten, and he’ll be joined by pianist Jim Gurney in a show that also includes patriotic numbers and even a sing-along. Merrill Piepkorn will join the tour as emcee for the event. ~~~ Chef Tim Rosendahl of Square One Kitchens is here with some great information about vinegar. ~~~ Ashley and Doug have this week’s “What’s Happening” calendar of events.
