Science Cafe

Science Cafes are a regular conversation series, aiming to break down the barriers between academia and the general public. Science Cafes democratize science, taking it out of the domain of the expert and allowing everyone to voice an opinion. It pulls science away from its usual habitats of the classroom and the laboratory, and into cafes, bars, restaurants, even theatres, demystifying new developments and opening them up for public debate. Join the Science North staff and various members of the local community in this regular event, to listen, learn and share.
