LIVE@Frost Science

For the Family

Starting Wednesday, June 21, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science debuts the first installment of a new lecture series called LIVE@Frost Science. The series will be kicked off by Hollywood Science & the Wonder Women of Miami, hosted by science communicator Cara Santa Maria of "Talk Nerdy" and “The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe.” The series prompts discussion of relevant and interesting science topics in an informal setting inside the Frost Planetarium.   Santa Maria will peel back the curtain on Hollywood filmmaking, describe how science makes its way to the silver screen, and reveal what makes Wonder Woman such an icon of feminine strength and smarts. She will be joined by some of Miami’s very own wonder women including leading local female scientists Lisa Beal, Ph.D. (Associate Dean of Research and Professor of Ocean Sciences at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science), Elizabeth Reynolds Losin, Ph.D. (Director, Social and Cultural Neuroscience Laboratory and Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology at University of Miami) and Kilan Ashad-Bishop (Ph.D. Candidate, University of Miami and Member, City of Miami Sea Level Rise Committee) will wield their lasso of truth and give you a glimpse into their projects and research. Tickets: General Admission – $15 for non-members / $12.75 for members VIP Admission – $40 for non-members / $34 for members includes reserved priority seating and a post-show reception from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. with Cara Santa Maria and featured scientists with complimentary light bites, beverages and specialty cocktails
