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.
What’s the set up?
It's a free event for adults 21+ from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
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 chosen science topic. After 30 minutes or so, we take a
break to get more drinks and elicit questions.
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.
