Science Friday In Hawai’i

On July 6th and 7th, enjoy First Take With Science Friday, live from the Aloha State!

Hawaiʻi Public Radio presents “First Take With Science Friday” and welcomes host Ira Flatow to his first live appearance in the Aloha State.

Every week, Science Friday brings today’s most innovative and exciting scientists to your public radio airwaves. “First Take With Science Friday” will bring those same stimulating science stories to two Hawaiʻi stages.

At these science-themed evening conversations, you’ll join Ira as he interviews a local scientist—and, true to Science Friday form, you’ll be invited to ask your own questions and join the conversation. The events will be recorded for possible broadcast on future episodes of Science Friday.

Both evenings are exclusive to HPR members and tickets may be requested at time of donation. Seating is reserved and assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.
