Every month, scientific experts and lay community meet in a cafe or bar to explore the latest scientific ideas and discoveries, using plain language. Admission is free, and you need no reservation to join us—just come ready to listen and offer opinions.
Café Scientifique started in England in 1998, and aims to demystify scientific research, inform, and engage the public with science, outside a traditional academic setting.
