The cephalopods descended upon Boston once again! Science Friday and WBUR teamed up to present an evening full of cephalo-bration at CitySpace, where attendees could watch short science documentaries, hear from marine biology experts, take a backstage tour through a cephalopod culture center, and meet a real-life octopus.

Joining us on stage this time are a few cephalopod celebrities:

  • Bret Grasse, manager of cephalopod operations at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole
  • Anik Grearson, Master’s student in marine biology student at Northeastern University and fellow at the Bellono Lab at Harvard University, who is studying all things undersea, with a soft spot for octopuses.
  • Owen Nichols, director of marine fisheries research at the Center for Coastal Studies, who conducts research in collaboration with Cape Cod fisherfolk to support sustainable fisheries.
