More About Science Cafés

Science Cafés bring scientists face-to-face with the general public in the comfortable, lively atmosphere of a neighborhood café or pub. The evening begins with a brief presentation by a scientist, which kicks off an extended discussion session between the scientist and audience. Previous cafés have covered climate science, evolution and religion, robotics, and health care, just to name a few.

All Science Cafés are free to the public, open to all ages and no science background is required. Pacific Science Center currently holds Science Cafés in three locations:

Queen Anne Science Café
First Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. T.S. McHugh's, 21 Mercer Street, Seattle. Formerly known as Science on Tap.
