FIT sponsors a monthly Science Cafe series during the school year at the Pizza Gallery & Grill in Viera.
Also during the school year, my department along with the Brevard and Melbourne Astronomical Societies sponsors an Astronomy & Astrophysics Public Lecture Series monthly in Melbourne. At those two events we have had both local and nationally/internationally known speakers on a wide variety of topics, from evolution to the search for extraterrestrial intelligence.
Mote Science Cafes are an informal public forum that aim to create an ongoing community conversation about the ocean, our connection to it, and the science that helps us understand it.
The Mote Science Cafe is not a place, it’s a roving, community-based outreach program of Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, Florida. Founded in 1955, Mote is an independent nonprofit marine research organization located in Sarasota, Florida.
Mote has seven centers for research focusing on sharks, sea turtles and marine mammals, coral reefs, toxins in the environment, aquaculture, coastal ecology and fisheries. Mote research is featured in its education programs and popular public aquarium.
An informal discussion series presented as a partnership between The Pier Aquarium, the University of South Florida College of Marine Science and the American Chemical Society, SciCafé St. Petersburg ‘09 created to raise awareness and satisfy a person’s curiosity about things scientific.
If you know of other cafés, please let us know.
