Science on Tap

Science on Tap is a series of events presented by Sunset Zoo and the Kansas Science Festival hosted at the Manhattan Brewing Company in downtown Manhattan, Kansas.  These events make science fun and accessible to everyone through direct interaction with scientists, hands-on experiences, and interactive games.  Each event has a different focus and provides a different experience.
