Science Café

Science Café Evanston is a forum for members of the public to engage in discussion with Northwestern researchers on interesting and important scientific issues. Café events are informal and accessible - much more so than a public lecture. It's an opportunity to gather with old and new friends in a relaxed atmosphere while participating in a program of very cool scientific 'stuff'!

Events are held monthly from September through June of each academic year. All are free and open to the public. Check the Science Café website for locations and times.

Science Café Evanston is organized and sponsored by Northwestern’s chapter of Sigma Xi, the scientific research society, Northwestern’s Vice President of Information Technology and Northwestern’s Vice President for Research.
