Cafe Scientifique Orlando is a gathering of scientifically-inclined people in Central Florida, who meet at a cafe, coffee house, pub, or nonacademic location to discuss events and ideas in the world of science. We enjoy beer and wine, and we use plain language to talk about extraordinary ideas.
Café Scientifique, or just Science Cafe, is a monthly gathering of scientific experts and interested lay community in a pub or other nonacademic setting. We explore the latest ideas in science and technology, using plain language. Admission is free, and you need no reservation—just come ready to listen and contribute. Please join us!
The best way to keep track of us is to subscribe to our low-traffic announcements-only mailing list. We’ll send out a message about once per month with info about what’s coming up. Subscribe now! (Addresses are private. We will never spam you.)
Every month at each location, we meet to hear and talk about a specific topic in science or technology.
The longest-running location is Taste in the College Park part of Orlando at 7PM on the first Wednesday of each month. This is a tapas restaurant with full bar. There’s no age restriction, but it’s usually adults. A new (2013-02) location is the Orange County Public Library downtown, first floor. This cafe is aimed at middle-school and older kids and teens, and their families.
Our next scheduled topic is…
Graham A.J. Worthy, Ph.D will discuss recent marine mammal mortalities in the Indian River Lagoon and how they relate to algal blooms. Dr. Worthy is Provost’s Distinguished Research Professor of Biology, Hubbs-Sea World Endowed Professor of Marine Mammalogy, and the Director of the Physiological Ecology and Bioenergetics Lab at the University of Central Florida.
