Discovery Center Adult Night

Thursday, Nov. 21

As that first cup pours slowly from the pot, you stare impatiently, waiting for your fix. You're hooked. The Discovery Center of Idaho is brewing up a new Adult Night that will help explain why your body has you convinced that you won't make it through the day without a hit of caffeine.

At Adult Night: The Science of Caffeine, you'll find out why it feels like you need the energizing substance, and you'll discover the effects of caffeine on the body, the hows and whys of dependency and more.

Make it a night out with friends. Grab a group of your favorite human beans and head to DCI, where you can chill out with a glass of beer or wine from local vendors, nibble on some tasty treats and enjoy live music from Hokum Hi-Flyers. Then get ready to rev it up with roasting demonstrations, experiments and presentations from experts in the field as they discuss where caffeine comes from, chemical reactions of caffeine, where caffeine occurs naturally and some of the health risks and benefits of the beloved substance--as well as a little caffeine myth-busting. You'll java great time.
