Latest edition of Wooster Science Café is this Thursday at Broken Rocks
WOOSTER, Ohio - The Wooster Science Café continues this Thursday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m., as Angela Bos, associate professor of political science at The College of Wooster, presents “Racing to 270: The Science of the Electoral College” at Broken Rocks Café, 123 E. Liberty St., in downtown Wooster.
Bos will examine the role and origin of the Electoral College, how it works, critiques of its impact on U.S. politics and presidential elections, and what we know about its likely effects on the 2016 election.
Bos, who chairs the political science department, teaches a broad range of courses on U.S. national politics, and her research interests include political psychology, campaigns and elections, and the media and politics. A member of the Wooster faculty since 2007, she earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota – Morris, and her master’s and doctorate from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities.
Science cafes are grassroots events that have sprung up all over the world, bringing together scientists and non-scientists in casual settings for lively, engaging conversation – all in plain English – on current science topics of interest. Each presenter provides a brief introduction to the evening’s topic and then facilitates a discussion.
The Wooster Science Café is co-sponsored by The College of Wooster and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center of The Ohio State University, and hosted by Broken Rocks Café.
