High-resolution 3D scans, prints, and renderings are changing the way scientists work! Please join Adam Rountrey of the U-M Museum of Paleontology and Nic Terrenato of the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology for a look at the research uses and educational opportunities made possible by 3D imaging and printing. With accurate digital "copies" available, are the original objects more or less important? How should 3D research data be shared and preserved? Can these copies make repatriation easier? What about equitable access to collections? Enjoy a presentation and casual conversation on the changing nature of historical sciences.

Science Cafés provide an opportunity for audiences to discuss current research topics with experts in an informal setting. Hors d’oeuvres at 5:30 p.m.; The program begins at 6:00 p.m.

Seating is limited—come early.
