What is a Science Cafe?

october 2013


Feeding A Hungry Mind…The Science Café is a place where anyone interested in science can get together in an informal setting to discuss major science issues with the help of an expert in the field. It is free and open to the public. Best of all, it is not a lecture! It is a forum for exploring new frontiers in Science and Technology. After a brief introduction by our guest speaker (in plain, jargon-free English), the evening is dedicated to informal discussion, eating and drinking. We'll all learn a lot while enjoying the company of accomplished scientists and other people who are interested in science.


“At The Place Where Science Intersects Life, You'll Find The Science Café.” It's a place where scholars mingle with the like-minded. It's a forum for exploring new ideas, discussing new concepts and expanding personal horizons. The Science Café in our area is an outreach initiative for educating the public on various scientific topics, sponsored by Florida Tech and the Brevard Zoo. Based on a popular European concept and modeled after the Pittsburgh Sci-Café, our Café brings to Central Brevard a new way for people to connect. Each month, we explore the many ways that science enhances and enriches our lives. The topics are intriguing and fascinating and the conversation always lively and stimulating…. We are holding our Sci-Café on the second Wednesday of each month at Tradewinds Restaurant, 7032 Stadium Pkwy, Viera FL 32940, 321-504-7776 (http://www.durangolf.com/tradewinds-restaurant/).
