Field Work Aligning Poetry & Science – Sept. 19, 2018 at the Natural History Museum of Utah

The Poetry-Science Cafe is a part of Field Work: Aligning Poetry & Science, a multi-city hybrid art and science program aimed at fostering STEM learning through poetry. Under this unique project, Poets House, the 70,000-volume national poetry library in New York City, will work with Salt Lake City Public Library and the Natural History Museum of Utah as well as other institutions across the nation to engage broad audiences in a range of interactive programs that “humanize” the language of science through multiple collaborative language arts experiments.

Included in Museum admission, free to Museum Members and University of Utah faculty, staff, and students with a current UofU ID.

Light refreshments will be provided.
