The Miami University community is invited to join Ira Flatow and the rest of the “Science Friday” public radio crew during a live show that uncovers some of the amazing science news and stories happening in southwest Ohio.

The special live performance at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 21, at Hall Auditorium will be recorded, with segments aired on Friday programs in the near future. That means audience members can be a part of a weekly “Science Friday” broadcast. The program is heard nationally on 374 public radio stations, including WVXU 91.7 FM and WMUB 88.5 FM locally from 2-4 p.m. Fridays.

Tickets will be available to the university community Feb. 12-14 before being offered to the public. Ticket prices are $10 for students and $20 for faculty, staff and the community. No service fees will be added to ticket prices.

“Science Friday” (“Sci Fri” to online fans) has 1.8 million public radio listeners each week and #scifri has 777,000 followers on Twitter, offering what it calls “brain fun for curious people.”

The award-winning 90-minute live program typically features conversations with scientists, live music, props, video screenings and demonstrations.

Miami University students, staff and faculty can buy tickets at the box office in the H.O.M.E. office in Campus Avenue Building, online at miamioh.edu/tickets or by calling 513-529-3200.

The program is co-sponsored by the president’s office and the Performing Arts Series.
