Meet other science lovers in your area! Whether it's chemistry, biology, physics, or geology, gather to meet others who like science! Science Cafés are informal discussions on a topic, led by an expert. Be warned however - this isn't your professors boring, powerpoint-driven spiel - it happens at bars, restaurants, or coffee shops, and the dialogue can be very interesting (and informative). A moderator gives everyone a chance to speak, while keeping the discussion lively. Based on the European Saloon style Café Scientifique, the San Antonio Science Café is a rare opportunity to drink a beer (or other beverage of choice) and really dig your teeth into a topic that interests you. Future and past topics include Clean Water Goes Down the Drain, Corporate-subsidized Science Education for Kids, Why We Fall in Love (and is there a cure?), Age of the Universe, and Evolution of the Darwinist. Q: Who should join us? A: Residents or visitors of San Antonio who -enjoy exploring the city. -like learning. -like casual atmosphere with thoughtful discussion. San Antonio Science Café is sponsored by the Alamo Chapter of Sigma Xi (
