January is once again upon us with all its rain, darkness, winter depression and breaking of New Years resolutions. January 2013 will be no different, but this year a whole community of science-enthusiasts will be sharing it with you.
A fresh team of organizers have worked hard to rethink the ScienceOnlineVancouver concept, and we offer a whole new format with lots of workshops, discussions and community feel. We have incorporated Science World exhibits into our meetings with no extra charge (besides participation in the following discussions), and we are bursting with ideas for great debates.
To kick off the new year and the new ScienceOnlineVancouver, we would like to invite you to a pub night on Jan. 17th at The Whip (on 6th and Main Street). Beyond the opportunity to have a good time, we want your input on future meeting dates, potential watch-parties with the North American ScienceOnline community, and ideas for topics and special guests.
As part of the re-formatting we will no longer be serving drinks at the meetings, but we highly encourage that you bring your own beer/wine/pop.
Happy New Year and see you soon,
The ScioVan team.
