Let's Meetup and Talk About Cockroaches
On Sunday, November 11, 2018, the STFK Science Café will meet from 2:00 to 3:30 P.M. at Ijams Nature Center. Our guest presenter is Dr. Todd Freeberg, the Associate Head of the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The focus of his recent research has been on cockroaches, and he is going to share some of his findings. This should be a fascinating discussion! The STFK Science Café is FREE to attend, and everyone is welcome! Complimentary refreshments are provided. Please RSVP by e-mail to [masked].

What we're about

We are a local chapter of a national network of Science Cafes created by WGBH Boston, the producers of the NOVA and NOVA scienceNOW programs for public television. We meet monthly for fun, casual discussion of various topics of real science. We invite a guest scientist to lead the Q&A portion of the meeting--you get to ask your questions, and the expert provides the answers! Children age 5-12 are welcome to attend with their parents; our Kid's Cafe meets in an adjacent room where we provide a science lesson (related to the adult disucssion) and fun, hands-on activities to help make learning science fun! Complimentary snacks and drinks are provided while they last.
