Are certain fonts easier to read than others? Is Comic Sans the perfect email font? At the December Eastside Science Café, join Microsoft’s Kevin Larson, PhD, to discover how optical illusions in some popular fonts make things easier to read and how the design and appearance of text can make you more cognitively creative.
 
The Eastside Science Cafe is your opportunity to talk with researchers about science and technology research—all in the comfortable atmosphere of a local pub.
 
Eastside Science Café is held on the second Monday of each month. Did you miss a café and want to hear the discussion? Most Science Cafés are recorded by KCTS 9 and are available for online viewing. Eastside Science Cafés take place at Wilde Rover in Kirkland and are presented in partnership with Pacific Science Center and KCTS 9.
