Chambana Science Cafe

Science Cafe

The IGB and the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology co-sponsor the Chambana Science Café, a monthly seminar series that brings scientists to the public to talk about their research in an informal setting. The talks are held on the first Wednesday of every month at 5:30 p.m. at Cafeteria and Company, and there is free pizza while it lasts.

Science cafés bring scientists to the public to talk about their work and answer your questions. Everyone is welcome! Past presentations include "The Evolution of Mammals: An Earful of Jaw Then and Now", "The Future of Prosthetics: Neural Control, 3D Printing, and Sensory Feedback", and "Living Foods: The Microbiology of Food and Drink." Check the Chambana Science Cafe Facebook timeline for dates, presenters and titles of upcoming seminars!
