What is the Science Cafe lecture series all about?
Science Cafes aren't your typical science lectures. We like to think of them as "Happy Hour Science" events for adults 21 and over that offer a fun twist to science that happens around us every day.
Each Science Cafe focuses on a different science topic and features a cash bar and presentations by specialists in an associated field. Presentations also sometimes include demonstrations, such as the tasing demonstration during our CSI Science Cafe in March 2012. Presentations are followed by Q&A sessions with the speaker.
We also allow Science Cafe attendees to scope out the museum's sidehalls (kid-free!) before and after the presentations.
Join us for our next Science Cafe:
