Sex is essential for Darwinian fitness, or how successfully an organism passes on its genes. At a special Valentine’s Day Tacoma Science Café, join the University of Puget Sound’s Peter Wimberger, Ph.D., to explore the many ways that marine organisms, from anemones and barnacles to flat worms and mussels, reproduce.
 
The Tacoma Science Cafe is your opportunity to talk with researchers about science and technology research—all in the comfortable atmosphere of a local pub. 
 
Tacoma Science Café is held on the second Tuesday 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 The Swiss Pub in Tacoma and are presented in partnership with Pacific Science Center and KCTS 9.
