RAPID CITY, SD (April 11, 2018) – South Dakota School of Mines & Technology has partnered with South Dakota Public Broadcasting and Hay Camp Brewing Company to host the STEAM Café, a series of free informal talks by SD Mines faculty and staff on topics ranging from cutting edge research to history.

STEAM Café, an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics, will be held at 6 p.m. the third Tuesday of each month, at Hay Camp Brewing Company.  

A food truck will be available at each STEAM Café where patrons can purchase dinner and handcrafted beer will be available for purchase from Hay Camp.
