A local nonprofit group of experts from Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History are "taking science to the streets," and you are invited to attend! Designed as a lively, informal discussion on topics spanning different fields of science, the Science Cafe will hold its FREE and OPEN forums in the Great Lakes Brewing Company Beer Cellar on the second Monday of every month beginning on April 9, 2007, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Light appetizers will be available, as well as a cash bar. RSVPs are not required, however the cafe will likely maximize between 30-40 people.
The April 9 topic will be global warming with local expert Dr. Bev Saylor, Associate Professor of Geology at CWRU. Science Cafe will also feature video clips from Nova's scienceNOW series (a PBS program).
Science Cafe is sponsored by Great Lakes Brewing Company, the CWRU Chapter of Sigma Xi and WGBH Public Television in Boston. About Science Cafes: Based on the European salon model, science cafés are informal events where scientists share their work with the public in a casual setting. Cafés enjoy tremendous success around the world—the public is genuinely interested in learning about current research. Don't hesitate to take advantage of this unique opportunity that Cleveland now has to offer.
