About

WHAT IS SCIENCE CAFE?

Science Cafe is a forum for the discussion of important and interesting scientific issues. They are informal and accessible – much more so than a public lecture. It’s an opportunity to gather with old and new friends in a relaxed atmosphere while participating in a program of very cool scientific ‘stuff’! No cover charge, EVER!


WHO WILL BE THERE?

Audiences consist of people who are interested in science but generally never have the opportunity to discuss their views with, and ask questions of, someone “in the know”. No scientific knowledge is assumed by the speakers, so anyone can participate.


WHAT HAPPENS AT A SCIENCE CAFE?

Cafes start with an engaging talk from the research scientist who introduces the topic. It is not a lecture, so anyone can ask a question, and positively welcomed will be those which begin “This might be a stupid question, but …” These questions are invariably not stupid and often rather insightful.


WHERE AND WHEN?

Our Science Café Evanston is scheduled to be held typically on the third or fourth Wednesday each month, September through May.

6:30—8:00 pm
The Firehouse Grill
750 Chicago Ave., Evanston 60202
