A TED Talk with a boozy twist, The Leakey Foundation hosts a series of science talks accompanied by hands-on experiments, games and plentiful opportunities to network or flirt as needed. In Being Human: Our Symbolic Nature, biological anthropologist Terrence Deacon will discuss how our ancestors’ capacity for symbolic thought helped shape our modern brains and language. Use what you learn to make a new friend.
