Sampling Science: The Engineering Behind Craft Beer
Sampling Science: The Engineering Behind Craft Beer returns for another great pour! Nielsen is hosting the 4th annual beer tasting and lecture series event on Friday, February 23rd, 2018 from 6:30 PM to 10 PM at their facility in Oldsmar, Florida. The proceeds from this event will benefit the Student Chapters of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and the Society of Women Engineers at the University of South Florida.
This year’s event will feature over fifty local craft beers! Learn about all aspects of brewing during one of the interesting beer talks occurring throughout the evening. Last year’s event topics ranged from barrel aging and fermentation to the history of brewing in America and the evolution of beer styles, and much more!
The purpose of this event is to help AIChE and SWE raise funds to continue their mission of promoting STEM education. Every year, both of these organizations participate in the University of South Florida College of Engineering's Engineering EXPO, which allows thousands of middle and high school students to experience engineering and science hands-on. It is the organizations' mission to inspire as many students as possible to pursue a career in STEM. Additionally, these organization use funds raised to invite professional speakers to general body meetings, attend professional conferences, and tour facilities. Each of these events allows their members to develop well-rounded views about becoming an engineer. With this event, we will be able to go above and beyond to catalyze students to do just that: become engineers.
