Science Cafés involve a face-to-face conversation with a scientist about current science topics. They are open to everyone (21 and older), and take place in casual settings like pubs and coffeehouses. A science café's casual meeting place, plain language, and inclusive conversation create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for people with no science background. Each meeting is organized around an interesting topic of conversation. A scientist gives a brief presentation followed by a question and answer period. Pizza will be provided by The Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures for the first 50 people. Pizza at 6:30, Talk at 7:00.
Get there early to join the rest of the secular group and reserve yourself a chair! Look for us on the stage to the left as you walk into the bar.
