Science in the City invites experts from local organizations to discuss timely topics in science and technology and how they affect our community. Each event features a presentation designed for general audiences followed by a discussion. Some events include exciting extras such as IMAX® documentary showings, planetarium demonstrations, or even hands-on activities to further explore the evening’s topic.

Humans have kept honey bees in hives for millennia, but only recently have we begun to investigate how these industrious insects live in the wild. As honey bee populations in beekeepers’ hives drastically decline worldwide, this knowledge is more vital now than ever before. On May 16, Dr. Tom Seeley, Horace White Professor in Biology at Cornell University, will share the captivating story of what today’s scientists are learning about the behavior, social life, and survival strategies of wild honey bees and how this information can be applied to beekeepers’ colonies. Tickets are just $5 or FREE for Pacific Science Center Members. | Doors open at 6:40 p.m.
