Science Cafe

Science Café Columbia

A “science café” is an informal gathering where scientists share their research or expertise with the community in a dynamic, interactive format. There is no powerpoint, but there is plenty of conversation, Q&A, and sometimes show-and-tell.

Science Café Columbia is held at 6 pm on the second Monday of the month during MU’s fall and spring semesters at Broadway Brewery, 816 E Broadway in Columbia, Missouri. Past topics have ranged from Neanderthals to autism, epidemics, volcanoes, Alzheimer’s, and whether Pluto should be a planet. This fall we are re-launching with talks on the science of brewing beer, the 2017 solar eclipse, earthquakes in Missouri, and how Missouri saved wine for the world.
