Feel the Power of the Dork Side is a hilarious and educational look at science and technology (and their practitioners), written and performed by Dr. Pete Ludovice, chemical engineering professor by day and stand-up comedian by night. It is a great time for both nerds and normal people, as well as H.S. students who are considering a STEM career (and their parents) that might be under the mistaken impression that STEM careers are boring.


Tickets are $20, and $15 for students and seniors (65 and over). Use the discount code "mendeleev" to get 25% off the general admission price of $20 in honor of 2019 being the international year of the periodic table.
