This Nerd Band is Clearly Guilty

This post contains affiliate links.

I first met Lora Williams when I featured the Kansas City chapter of Extra Life, a gaming charity event. After seeing her at several cons and a MakerFaire, I found out she’s also a part of a self-proclaimed “nerd band” called Clearly Guilty. When they gave me an impromptu performance, I knew a feature post was in order. Read on and find out why they are known for calling out “bad nerds.”

SciFlix: The Science Behind Sci-Fi

This post contains affiliate links.

As any good geek family, we watch a lot of movies, both at home and at the theater. When something extra-ordinary or supernatural happens that we don’t quite follow how it happened, we refer to it as “eh, comic book science” – as in, it doesn’t have to be founded on actual science to be entertaining.

But there is a group in Kansas City that not only watches science fiction movies – they dig into the actual science behind the plot and action and discuss real life examples. Allow me to introduce you to SciFlix.

SciFlix is a science fiction movie watching group in Kansas City, designed around taking the science, the theories, and the ethics in popular fiction and discussing it openly and honestly. Learn more on KCGeeks.com!

Kansas City Astronomy: Stargazing with the Astronomical Society of KC

As a young Girl Scout, I remember laying out in the empty field across from a co-scout’s house, and looking up at the stars, learning the various Kansas City astronomy constellations for a badge. Years later, when I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I loved how different the night sky looked there.

While I still appreciate the beauty of the night sky, I must admit I don’t know much more than those Girl Scout beginner basics. The Astronomical Society of Kansas City could probably teach me a thing or two. Read on to learn more about this 80+-year-old group and events.

Toss your balls with the KC Juggling Club

Often my life feels like one big juggling act – work, family, social life, (non-existent) exercise routine, blogging – it seems like a “ball” is bound to drop from time to time. Maybe I could use some pointers from Nick Civitello and the Kansas City Juggling Club. Grab your balls (and hoops and yo-yos and flaming sticks) and find out what makes this group feel like a family.

Boldly Go with the USS Valiant

THIS POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS.

As we look to new adventures in 2017, I thought it appropriate to highlight a group that is dedicated to boldly going in search of strange new worlds, new life, and new civilizations. That’s right – there’s a Kansas City Star Trek fan club, which operates the USS Valiant. A bold name for all that lies ahead. Read on to find out why the group is “like that odd family that you’re not real sure about, but secretly want to be a part of.”
