The National Museum of Natural History invites you to attend a special evening with Deputy Executive Director for Communications at the National Academy of Sciences, Ann Merchant.

Merchant is responsible for a program called the Science & Entertainment Exchange, which connects the entertainment and science communities. If you've seen major films such as Captain America, Divergent, Frozen, and Battleship – to name a few, you've seen the results of Merchant's work.

In conversation with Kirk Johnson, Sant Director of the National Museum of Natural History, Merchant will give a first-hand look at how The Exchange is working to bring more – and better – science to film and television. And, if these major films are any proof, audiences are hungry for a good dose of (entertaining) science! 

This program is part of the An Evening With...  signature series featuring thought leaders in conversation with paleontologist and Sant Director of the National Museum of Natural History, Kirk Johnson.
