We believe science is best when it’s shared. Our MDI Science Cafés provide relaxed and fun forums in which to learn about the science that affects your life.
At each Science Café, a scientist gives a short presentation in everyday language about his or her work and its implications. The floor is open for questions and discussion. It can get lively and it’s always engaging. Each Café lasts about one hour, and refreshments are available. MDI Science Cafés are open to the public and free of charge.
The dates for our summer Cafés are: June 26, July 10 and 24, August 7 and 21, and September 11. Please check back for more information about speakers and topics. The Cafés will be held at the MDI Biological Laboratory, lower campus.
