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.
The National Children’s Study aims to improve the health and well-being of children. It will examine the effects of environment on development of 100,000 children across the United States, following them from before birth until age 21. The Study defines “environment” broadly, taking a number of natural and man-made factors into account. Researchers will better understand the role those factors have on health and disease. Orlando is one of a number of sites in Florida that will participate.
