OMSI Science Pub now has TWO locations in Portland! Come to the first ever Science Pub-Bagdad Theater on Monday, June 1 to hear about:

"Crime Lab Confessions: A Forensic Scientist Tells All"
with Kori Barnum
Monday, June 1
7:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m.
Bagdad Theater & Pub, 3702 SE Hawthorne Blvd., Portland http://mcmenamins.com/index.php?loc=9&id=176
Doors open at 5:00 p.m. Come early for food and drinks!

You can't turn on the TV these days without seeing a show about scientific evidence in criminal cases, but how close are these programs to how actual forensic analysis is conducted?

Learn the "Top 10 CSI Myths" and hear responses to each from a real forensic scientist (hints: it takes more than one person to do all the analysis, and it's not all push-up bras and Humvees). This Science Pub will focus on the major areas of forensic analysis, including firearms, latent prints, drug chemistry, and DNA.

Kori Barnum is a scientist at the Oregon State Police Forensic Laboratory in Clackamas, with a background in anthropology, firearms identification, and forensic biology (examining physical evidence for biological stains.) Her favorite types of evidence are thong underwear and AK-47s.

Science Pub is open to anyone and everyone; no RSVP is necessary. Tell your friends. We hope to see you there!

Please Note: Science Pub Portland now has a suggested cover charge of $2.00. (If that's a hardship for you, please come anyway!)
