Café Scientifique began in France and the U.K., based on the French Café Philosophique, as a way for the public and scientists to mingle and discuss scientific issues in an informal setting. Science buffs (and the simply curious) meet in a friendly pub for a casual introduction to a current science topic, led by an expert. Informal Q & A and conversation follows. The event is free and open to everyone.
Café Scientifique (Arlington) is organized by a small group of volunteers from the National Science Foundation. We welcome input and ideas for speakers and topics. Bring them with you, or send to Mary Hanson ([email protected]) or Sarah Goforth ([email protected]).
If you would like a flyer for your neighborhood or workplace, or if you would like to receive e-mail notification for future events, please contact Sarah at [email protected].
