Adventure Science Center invites you to join us for a series of informal discussions on current issues in science. Whether tackling how science can solve global problems or help us to understand how the universe works, these gatherings are NOT lectures. They are an opportunity for you to share your opinions, ideas and thoughts with other science lovers and to meet local scientists in a fun, casual setting. So grab a cup of coffee and let's chat! All Science Cafe events are free and open to the public.

Schedule: Join us on the third Thursday of each month from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Adventure Science Center. Have an idea for a topic? Submit your idea here!

Join our Science Cafe Meetup Group! You'll get notices about each month's meeting topic and speaker(s).
