More Details: Never heard of a Science Café?
Science cafés are live—and lively—events that take place in casual settings such as pubs and coffeehouses, are open to everyone, and feature an engaging conversation with a scientist about a particular topic.
The science café format has spread across the globe, adapting to different cultures and audiences. Whether it’s in a bar in Somerville, MA, an Indian restaurant in New Rochelle, NY, or a coffeehouse in San Francisco, CA, each café:
• Encourages conversation, debate, and interaction.
Successful science cafés create a comfortable atmosphere where everyone joins in. They are not long lectures with a passive audience listening to an expert.
• Reaches out to all audiences. Science cafés welcome people who may or may not typically get involved with scientific discussions. They are not exclusive club meetings for scientists and science majors.
