Science on Tap presents 'Grandfamilies: When Grandparents Raise Their Grandchildren'

Submitted by Michi Tobler

Science on Tap is held in a relaxed setting and features a brief, informal presentation by a K-State scientist followed by lively conversation. The goal is to build the community's enthusiasm for science in a fun and unique way.

Science on Tap features a short introduction to the scientists' research and time to engage with fellow attendees around the research presented. The event wraps up with a conversational Q&A period. The free, interactive program begins 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, at Tallgrass Tap House, 320 Poyntz Ave. Be sure to let the Tap House staff know you are there for Science on Tap.

September's Science on Tap features Jesse Piper. Piper is a doctoral student in School of Family Studies and Human Services at K-State. She grew up in a grandfamily, being raised by her grandma. As a doctoral student, she now uses science to better understand grandfamilies. Join us to try your hand at being a family scientist while you analyze different grandfamily scenarios.

Other Science on Tap events this fall will be on Oct., 16, Nov. 13 and Dec. 11.
