Get sauced for a good cause at Science of Cocktails

VANCOUVER — Science World issued a challenge to Derek Gaw of MakerLabs to create a robot bartender that could pour a pretty stiff Negroni and, in just 24 hours, they succeeded.

Currently in its second year, Science World’s charity fundraiser, Science of Cocktails, brings together Vancouver’s most talented bartenders and chefs to showcase the chemistry, biology, and physics behind preparing modern cocktails and cuisine. With the purchase of a ticket, guests will be treated to as many scientifically inspired cocktails and gastronomy samples that they can handle from over 32 food and bar stations. Created as a way to support the institution’s Class Field Trips bursary program, the event combines feelings of childhood nostalgia with experiments in mixology and gastronomy that any adult can connect with.

“Last year we raised approximately $180,000 [for Class Field Trips] and were able to welcome over 5000 school kids from underserved schools,” explains Jennifer Ingham, the vice president of development at Science World. “We noticed that we knew we weren’t reaching kids that we typically would and therefore weren’t able to give them an informal learning experience outside of the classroom which is so valuable in a practical, fun, and imaginative way.”

Science of Cocktails takes places at Science World on February 9.
