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.
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.
