Cafe Scientifique 

I don't know how I missed this for this week's NOW.

Check out Café Scientifique, an awesome, free, 21+ gathering tonight at ECHO:

It’s the place where science and culture intersect. Based on the popular European salon concept, ECHO’s Café Scientifique provides a unique, relaxing setting to engage in thoughtful conversations about hot button science topics, with the participation of an acknowledged expert in each field.

We turn down the lights, arrange some tables and chairs, and open the bar. We chat with old friends and new faces alike, get a beer, have some hors d’oeuvres and then find a seat.

At 7 p.m., the speaker of the evening begins a conversation on the science topic for the evening. After 30 minutes or so, we take a break to get more drinks and elicit questions for the speaker.

After that, it’s time to challenge the speaker, have dialogue at the table, drink more, and feel like we’ve delved a little deeper into the science of this wonderful world.


Tonight's speaker is UVM Physics Prof Dr. Dennis Clougherty. His talk is titled: "Nanotechnology: Size Does Matter." Cool.

Science is totally in now that Obama is president. Haven't you heard?

Thanks, Bill, for the tip.
