Harry Potter and the Genetics of Wizarding - Join us a BackBar in downtown Chapel Hill as biologist Eric Spana's deconstructs the laws of genetics that J.K. Rowling sets up in her blockbuster Harry Potter books. How can two Muggles give birth to a Wizard? Two wizards, to a Squib? We'll take genetics to a whole new Hogwartian level at this month's Carolina Science Cafe! Note: This event takes place at a bar. Each Carolina Science Cafe features an expert presentation and informal discussion. These programs are held at Top of the Hill restaurant's "Back Bar," which offers a relaxed environment to explore fascinating science topics. Beverages are available from Top of the Hill's menu, and free appetizers - while they last - are provided by Sigma Xi.
