This is a 21+ event, please remember to bring your ID.

Howdy Learners! We're excited to get together for another Learning Night at Aeronaut Brewing. Learning Night is like a casual version of TED talks with a diverse group of interesting folks in a freeform jam of ideas and stories you've probably not heard before. Come ready to mingle and share :)

Can’t make it? Join the email list for future events:


Ritika will be giving a talk about How Animals Think

Jason will be giving a talk about Progress Studies

Laura will be giving a talk about How Faith, Hope, and Love Conquers Trauma

Want to give a talk? You don't have to be an expert, just passionate about sharing :) Please message Bill if you're interested in speaking.

How does a Learning Night work?

Each night has 3 speakers who share something they're passionate about—anything at all! It's typically a 15 min talk + 5 min Q&A. Examples of past talks:

  • History of circumcision

  • How to build a particle accelerator at home

  • Teaching a hip-hop class

  • Making GIFs in Photoshop

  • The science of sushi

  • More talks on our website at


A huge thank you to Aeronaut Brewing for hosting us :) You'll be able to order refreshments at the event.

🚶 Once you arrive, make your way to the back of the event space.
🚲 There are bike racks directly in front near the entrance of Boston Bouldering Project.
🚋 Aeronaut is about equidistant from the Union Square (Green Line), Harvard (Red Line) or Porter Square (Red Line) T stops.
🚙 There's a parking lot on Bleachery Ct near Veterans Memorial Rink, but if it's full you can try the meters on Somerville Ave.

🕰️ We will start promptly at 6:57pm and will end punctually at 9:02pm.

❗️Please use Luma to RSVP, as we need to track headcount and cap the event once we are at capacity.
