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.
In the year 2009, we intend to follow monthly themes suggested by the Coalition on Public Understanding of Science. First up: About science itself.
Join Seminole Community College Planetarium Director Derek Demeter as we explore the evolution of science from the times of Ptolemy to the modern science we know today. We will begin our journey in ancient Greece, where the first scientists sought out observational truth about the natural world they lived in. We then venture into the Middle East during the middle ages, where experimental science began to develop. Following, we emerge to the time of Galileo where observation and experimentation takes its final form in what we now know as modern science. We end our journey in modern times to see what science has in store for the future.
