Science Café offers a great night out, a chance to meet new people, learn new things, and discuss current scientific research in plain language. Events are free and open to the public.

The first science cafés (Café Scientifique) were started in Europe in the early 1990’s. The intent was to offer a relaxed public forum for the exchange of ideas (over coffee, beer, and food) in a friendly setting where anyone could come and sharpen their knowledge of the modern sciences. It was also a place where people could ask questions about the relevance, risk, and ethical concerns relating to a topic. Today, there are science cafés around the world. Cafés, pubs and restaurants serve as venues for scientists and other experts to give short public presentations on specific topics followed by Q&A and open discussion.

Each Science Café event includes a moderator who introduces 2-3 panelists addressing a monthly topic as it relates to his/her experience and expertise. After each speakers’ brief (10-15 minute) talk, the audience asks questions and discusses the topic. The moderator fills in the gaps and facilitates questions. The Science Café provides an opportunity for an interesting night out, a chance to meet new people, learn new things, and discuss current scientific research/applications in plain English.

Science Cafe in Little Rock is hosted by Vieux Carre/The Afterthought the 4th Tuesday of every month. Join your Freethinking friends for a fun and interesting evening! Get there early as seating is limited.
