October 11: Science on Tap kicks off the 10th season with “Now What? Science after death’

The new season of Science on Tap kicks off October 11 at the SEE Science Center.

MANCHESTER, NH – The SEE Science Center will launch its 10th season of Science on Tap on October 11.

Science on Tap events are informal discussions with local scientists and experts on a particular topic that take place monthly from fall through spring. The 2022-2023 season is sponsored by Cambridge Trust.

On Tuesday, October 11 our subject will be: Now what? Science after death. As we head into late fall, Halloween, and the Day of the Dead, we’ll examine the scientific processes that can and will take place after our last breaths. Join us to discuss different options for the treatment and placement of human remains. Discover the critical details involved in harvesting and preserving donated organs. Discuss the chemical and physical processes involved in embalming, cremation, and green burial options. Our panelists will include Michael F. Daily, MD, MS, FACS, Solid Organ Transplant, Section Chief, Dartmouth Health, Caitlyn Hauke, Director of Strategic Planning and Development, Life Forest Cemetery, Hillsborough, NH and Sarah, B. Page , and Alaina M. Oropollo of Lambert Funeral Home. Sarah is a Funeral Director and Licensed Embalmer, and Alaina is a Funeral Director, Trainee Embalmer and Cremation Specialist.

Since the program began in 2013, SEE has hosted 75 talks with 186 unique panelists. “It’s been great to bring experts and the public together and provide a place where people can learn about important topics informally, without prerequisites, cost or commitment,” said Adele Maurier, SEE Science Center. “We look forward to our tenth season and invite anyone from the community who is interested in learning to join us.” The discussions will take place on the second Tuesday of the month from October to June, in person.

Science on Tap events are free and open to the public, but advance registration is appreciated. Science on Tap is held at Stark Brewing Co. in Bo’s Lounge and Ballroom at 500 Commercial Street Manchester, NH monthly through June. Doors open at 5:00 p.m., discussions begin at 6:00 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to order from the food and beverage menu during the event.
