The Putnam Museum is throwing a Mad Scientist Ball to help fund their new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Learning Center on Saturday, May 18th at 7:30 PM. The Putnam is helping to energize the Quad Cities and build more awareness about the STEM community, and are hoping to put together a fantastic set of exhibits for our community. When the QC Co-Lab heard about this formal soiree, we knew that we needed to be there.
QC Co-Lab president David Hinkle and secretary Cody Wilson will be in attendance at the ball. According to the invitation, the dress for the event is ”Cocktail attire, Lab Coats encouraged.” We plan to take this instruction literally. We’ll be sure to post an update after the ball detailing the event.
