5 things to do under $5 April 20-26: Science talks, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Cotee River Seafest

Scientists are pushing hard for more science literacy among laymen and you can hear some of the area's best researchers talk about their work. Monday through April 28, hear talks on climate science, cancer and the bioscience of beer at local coffee shops and pubs. Reserve a spot at tasteofscience.org/tampa. $5.
