The physical structure of ice and snow often causes the tiny crystals of frozen water to seem to behave strangely or mysteriously. Do snow crystals carry messages? Why does window-frost curve? How does ice actually damage something? At the January Eastside Science Café, join snow-crystal researcher Jon Nelson, Ph.D., to explore the common, curious, and sometimes totally bizarre ice formations we see around us during winter.

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.
