Join the Bradbury Science Museum and the Los Alamos Creative District for Science On Tap Monday, Feb. 11 at 5:30 p.m. at UnQuarked Wine Room. This discussion will feature Dr. Yu Seung Kim of the Los Alamos National Lab Materials Synthesis and Integrated Devices group. This event will replace the previously scheduled Feb. 25 Science On Tap.
Fuel-cell research has been a hot topic at Los Alamos since the 1970s. Today, energy-security is a key component of the Lab’s global security mission, and scientists continue to search for novel solutions to current fuel-cell limitations. Dr. Yu Seung Kim of the Lab’s Materials Synthesis and Integrated Devices group proposes fuel cells designed with an ion-pair coordinated polymer membrane will increase both the range of temperatures a fuel-cell can reliably function in, as well as the power of vehicles.
About the On Tap Series: On Tap is a series of discussions hosted at UnQuarked in downtown Los Alamos. Each month features one On Tap with a rotating theme. The Pajarito Environmental Education Center partners with the Creative District to host Nature On Tap. The Los Alamos Historical Society and Los Alamos Arts Council/Fuller Lodge Art Center host History and Art On Tap, respectively. The Bradbury Science Museum hosts Science On Tap every month.
Registration for this event is not required and admission is free. UnQuarked Wine Room by Sirphey offers a wide selection of wines and beers on tap. Be sure to arrive early to place your order from Sirphey’s made-fresh daily menu!
