The Biology of Taste

Have you ever wondered how biology affects your sense of taste? This month, the Cap City Biohackers will host a food science event to tackle the biology of what we eat! From learning how to make healthy vegan cheeses (that tastes like the real thing) to tricking your tastebuds with miracle berries, prepare for a night full of tasting, learning, and having fun!

Come see Zach Friedman teach us about vegan cheese and Dave guide us through the miracle berry flavor experience!

Get your tickets below! We will have to limit the number of people so please purchase your tickets asap! Lick you later!

August Water Sampling with Stone Lab

Calling all citizen scientists! Come out and join the OSU Stone Lab as we help them monitor local waterways. 

We'll meet at Stone Lab on Kinnear Road at 5:30 to gather equipment, then carpool to the testing site off of Ackerman. You'll be wading in the stream so bring your boots or water shoes. And since it's summer in Ohio we recommend packing your sunscreen and bug spray! Upon arriving at the test site, we'll gather water samples and take water chemistry measurements. Then we'll use nets and pick up rocks to look for and log macro-invertebrates. 

No experience is necessary! Even if you don't want to get wet, you can observe from the banks and help identify some macro-invertebrates. 

Post any question or comments below and we'll see you on the 23rd!
