In the New York area, adults can attend edutainment events on almost any given night at venues as diverse as rock clubs and arts spaces.  From Nerd Nite and Secret Science Club to Story Collider and museum sleepovers, there’s no shortage of fun ways for adults to learn.  At this panel, Ella Morton (Atlas Obscura – Workman), Theo Gray (Reactions – Hachette), and Doug Harris (My Name is Stardust - Storybook Genius) discuss the importance of making science and history accessible and interesting to people of all ages.  They’ll explain how they play a role in educating the public in today’s world while sharing numerous examples from their own books and experiences.  The moderators will be Olivia Koski and Jana Grcevich, co-authors of Vacation Guide to the Solar System: Science for the Savvy Space Traveler!
