Science Café Cleveland
The Science Cafés provide an informal public forum for the open discussion of current science issues; they are based on the European salon model and many such cafes are currently active throughout much of the world.
Science Café Cleveland is sponsored by the Case chapter of Sigma Xi and WCPN ideastream (Cleveland). We've also received generous support from the ACES+ program at Case. Science Cafe Cleveland is a lively, informal scientific discussion in an inviting atmosphere of food and drink that usually takes place the second Monday of each month at the Tasting Room of Great Lakes Brewing Company.

For some of our topics, we've provided a few suggestions for pre-readings in case you want to prime your mind for a cafe. You can also usually preview the cafe by listening to the Sound of Ideas on WCPN ideastream (90.3 FM) the morning of the cafe. (Links to podcasts of past shows can be found on our list of past cafes; they are a great way to catch up on topics that you happened to miss.) If you would like to suggest a topic for a future cafe or would like to be added to our email list, please send us an email. You can also email us with links to stories or pics of Science Café Cleveland that might be suitable for listing on our web site.
Doors will be open 5:30 - 9:00 PM (Last call at 8:45PM). Discussion begins around 7:00 PM. The Tasting Room will also host a limited menu before and during the event. Not to mention beer! (Click here to view menu).
*Please Note* A few of our cafes have approached capacity and/or standing room only. If you want to be 100% sure to get in and get a good seat, you might want to arrive a bit early. A chairlift is available by request. Hope to see everyone there!
