About OSU Cascades Science Pub


A collaboration between OSU-Cascades and OSU's main campus in Corvallis brings you some of OSU's leading researchers. Delve into their fascinating worlds in casual Science Pubs held monthly at McMenamins in Bend, and in Sisters and Sunriver. No scientific background required-just bring your curiosity, sense of humor and appetite for food, drinks and knowledge!

Science Pubs offer a full menu and no-host bar. Networking begins at 5:30 p.m.

Reservations Required and Limited to 100
Science Pubs are free, but their popularity demands that we require reservations no later than 5 p.m. the day prior to each lecture. To make a reservation, visit our website and use the RSVP online form listed below the Science Pub lecture you wish to attend. Online reservations will be available starting six weeks prior to each Science Pub until 5 p.m. the day prior to each lecture. If you need to cancel your reservation, please email us so that we can accommodate others. Accommodations for disabilities may be made by calling 541-322-3100.


About “Alternative Transportation Fuels: What about Natural Gas?”

Chris Hagen, Assistant Professor, Energy Systems Engineering, OSU-Cascades

Natural gas is one of the cleanest alternative fuels, we don't have to go overseas for it, and it's cheaper than gasoline.  But, it's not easily available, you don't go as far on a tank, and gas-powered vehicles aren't exactly the rage. Learn about new research underway at Oregon State University's Bend campus that may make gas-powered transportation increasingly possible, by creating a storage and compression system that can perhaps work in your vehicle.
