You never know where love will strike… like today’s blog article author, artist Lindsay Olson who tells how she fell in love with science at a wastewater treatment plant.  Her beautiful art is inspired by the beauty she found in science while observing our waterways and how she took that curiosity to the next level by participating in research onboard an ocean research vessel.  The link is in our profile! ...#OceanAcoustics #marinescience #sciart #stemart #rvendeavor #lindsayolsonart #oceanscience #SOFAR #soundscapes #soundscience #acoustics #chicagoscience #scienceinchicago #scienceblog #scienceblogs #illinoissciencecouncil #iscblog #scienceunsealed #chicagoscientists #chicagoartists #chicagoartist #scienceandart #artandscience

You see a beautiful ring on instagram and click on their profile to see more of their jewelry.  You love it! You click through to their website to check prices. Yikes! Well, you head back to instagram defeated and now your feed is filled with sponsored ads for beautiful jewelry.  What’s going on? That’s machine learning at work. Ainsley Lawrence tells us more about machine learning and where else we see it in our everyday lives in this week’s Science Unsealed blog.  Click the link in our profile to read on!

Looking for something to do tonight?? We've still got tickets available for our event the Science of Game of Thrones at @haymarketpub at 7pm!  Link is in the profile....Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Firebats? How quickly would the White Walkers have been able to scale the Ketchup Wall? Were the Targaryens more inbred than the pharaohs? ...That’s one scientist's way to view Game of Thrones. Rebecca Thompson, PhD, tells us that ice can behave like ketchup, compares regular steel to Valyrian steel, explains that dragons are "bats, but with fire," and considers Targaryen inbreeding. She is not here to take away your enjoyment of the show, but use it as a gateway to learning some really interesting science. ...Even the most faithful Game of Thrones fans will learn new and interesting things about the show from Thompson's entertaining and engaging account. Fire, Ice, and Physics is an essential companion for all future binging....Copies of Fire, Ice & Physics will be available for purchase and signing after the event thanks to Open Books(doors open at 6:00pm)...#chicagoevent #todoinchicago #chicago #chicagoevents #chicagotonight #chicagohappyhour #chicagoscience #scienceinchicago #happyhourchicago #gameofthrones #scienceofgameofthrones #nerdyevents #nerdyevent #scienceiscool #todayinchicago #chicagonerds #chicagonerd #nerdychicago #geekoutchicago #geeksnightoutchicago

Ah, this beautiful beach scene is idyllic as we coast into the chillier months.  What’s in this picture? Palm trees, clouds, a boat on the ocean… OK, go smaller.  The grains of sand? Sure, but what about something even smaller than that? This week’s ISC blog is going nano!  So, how about the nanoparticles that make up the sunscreen or the paint on the boat?

The Air and Water show may be over, but we’re still thinking about the science behind it.  For example - the pilots have got to have perfect control and timing to pull off those maneuvers.  If there was a medical emergency for these pilots, wouldn’t it be great if they could monitor it and treat before there was an issue?  That’s exactly what this week’s Science Unsealed blog article is all about.

The #ChiSciFest Expo Day is just over one week away - there will be so many cool demos and speakers!  Have you bought your tickets yet? Still on the fence? Well did you know that one lucky science fan will win a complimentary night for two at the boutique Chicago Hotel EMC2 (@hotelemc2) - the intersection of art & science - including breakfast in The Albert, EMC2's book-lined restaurant. (One entry per ticket purchased. Official Rules can be found via the eventbrite link in our bio). I feel like that’s a pretty good incentive. Today is a great day to support science in our beautiful city!

Get your hands dirty and experience ISC’s most popular Chemistry of… event where you learn how to make beer from the brewers at Metropolitan Brewing Company.  This event is not just a talk or a tasting (although there will certainly be tasting!). You will engage in hands-on chemistry experiments and leave with an insider's view of the craft beer brewing process at Metropolitan. You'll learn about your beloved beverage in new ways to impress others with your beer knowledge. Our friends at Metropolitan are fun and low-key, but they are serious about craft beer. ...Space is limited. No science prerequisite is necessary, only your curiosity, but you must be 21 or older. . ..This is happening on Wednesday, May 15th, 6:30pm at Metropolitan Brewing Company, 3057 N Rockwell St, Chicago, IL 60618. ...Tickets go on sale today (April 25) at 5pm.  Go to ChemistryOfBeer.eventbrite.com for more details and to purchase your ticket!#chiscifest #chicagosciencefest #scienceinchicago #chicagoscience #illinoisciencecouncil #scienceofbeer #scienceofbrewing #beerscience #chemistryofbeer #eventsinchicago #chicagoevents #todochicago #chicagobeer #beerinchicago #fortheloveofbeer #fortheloveofscience #beerisgood #beer #chicagobreweries #metropolitianbrewery #metrobrewing @metrobrewing
