Are you confused by all the talk of bats and the novel coronavirus? Or more generally, are you a bat fan? Or maybe you just wish you could still attend a science happy hour in these strange times?
Well we can help you out! We’re going on-line with our April event, so we can still have our science happy hour while hunkering down. Grab a drink and something to eat and settle in. We’ll be bringing you THREE speakers instead of the usual two, and things are going to get pretty batty!
