Break It Down: Science Friday Live In St. Louis says
Presented by St. Louis Public Radio
Sponsored Locally by: SSM Health – SLU Hospital

Get ready, St. Louis - Science Friday is coming to the Sheldon to Break It Down! We’ll talk with:

- Conservation geneticist Christy Edwards, who uses one of the smallest pieces of a plant—its DNA—to guide large-scale conservation decisions

- Geologist Michael Wysession, who tells the story of how North America was nearly ripped in two—and what kept it together

- Microbial ecologist Bo Adu-Oppong, who studies the microbiome of plants—and tells us how to make a bacterial layer cake, from a soil sample

- Science Friday’s Ariel Zych and Charles Bergquist, who will reconvene the Science Friday Science Club. This time they’re inviting you to break down complex things - plants, devices, molecules, even languages - in order to better understand how they work

- And brewmaster Martin Toft of 4 Hands Brewing Co., who will judge a special SciFri quiz on the science of brewing beer—and toast you if you’re right.

All that and a fiddle breakdown by St. Louis’ own Buckley & Walsh, and a special dance performance by breakdancers Moh and Abduallah Ghraiz of COCA and Funk CB Crew.
