Science on Tap: a Seattle Science Cafe
Science on Tap is a place where anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology in a relaxed atmosphere.
* Science on Tap is a place where anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology in a relaxed atmosphere.
* A forum for discussing science issues with local scientists, Science on Tap is based on Cafe Scientifique. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accessible.
* What to expect: meetings usually last about one to two hours. The speaker gives a short talk about their area of interest, followed by a break to fill up on coffee and a time for small group discussions. Afterwards there will be a question and answer session and general discussion of the topic with the speaker and the audience at large.
* Monthly meetings take place at the Ravenna Third Place Bookstore in Seattle at the corner of 20th Ave NE and NE 65th Street. Free parking is available.
