So, what is Nerd Nite? We all know learning is more fun when you’re drinking with friends. Thus, Nerd Nite is a monthly event held in 100+ cities (like Tokyo, Miami, London, Fargo, and New York) during which folks give 20 minute fun-yet-informative presentations across all disciplines – while the audience drinks along! There are often bands, trivia, and other shenanigans as well. Imagine learning about math feuds, the emu war of Australia, the genealogy of Godzilla, or zombie insects, while having a few. Find a local Nite near you or check out past presentations on our YouTube channel. Sound fun? Join us.
