What's a Science Cafe Anyway? A Science Cafe is a lively, informal public event in a casual setting that focuses on a topic of wide interest. We'll begin with an illustrated talk, followed by Q&A, door prizes, and more! Participants are encouraged to purchase food and drink and to engage with the presenter and other participants. Join us--it's FREE!
