Cars, trucks, boats, and snowmobiles—they all have combustion engines that produce toxic gases such as carbon monoxide, unburnt or partially burnt fuel (hydrocarbons) and nitrogen oxides. Come meet Daniel Burgard, PhD; University of Puget Sound Department of Chemistry and learn why these gases are of concern and how they differ with different types of vehicles.
 
The Queen Anne Science Cafe is your opportunity to talk with researchers about science and technology research—all in the comfortable atmosphere of a local pub. 
 
Queen Anne Science Café is held on the first 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. Queen Anne Science Cafes take place at T.S. McHugh's and are presented in partnership with Pacific Science Center, Science on Tap and KCTS 9.
