Columbus Science Pub

Since 2010, the Columbus Science Pub has been dedicated to hosting speakers from across the fields of scientific study at no charge to the public.We've hosted scientists and researchers from The Ohio State University, The Kinsey Institute, Harvard University, Battelle, The Columbus Zoo and many more.  Our speakers have covered a diverse range of topics from the neurobiology of zombies to the science of fracking to ethnomusicology. By connecting the Columbus community with experts who use science in their daily lives, we grow science literacy. We present a new talk every month. Speakers are invited based on requests from our audience, science topics in the news, and recommendations from the Columbus community. Please contact Katherine O’Brien ( and Rob Evans ( if you have questions, suggestions, or would like to give a talk.
