Café Scientifique

Café Scientifique

Café Scientifique is a FREE science-based program for adults and young adults. Each event begins with an introduction and background of the topic by the featured presenter and concludes with an open forum for questions and discussion.

"Café Sci" events are happening all over the world — with leaders in science and technology engaging audiences in discussion around meaningful and relevant topics in an informal setting.

Café Sci events take place on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:00-7:30 pm. Beer and wine are available for purchase from 5:30-6:00 pm during the pre-program reception.
