Science Cafés invite the general public to discuss science-related subjects with an expert. They typically take place in a pub or coffeehouse, where a relaxed and informal atmosphere sets the stage for an interesting presentation by a specialist and inspires a dialogue and the exchange of ideas. The Science Cafe of the College of Science and Mathematics at North Dakota State University was established in 2008 and takes place three times each semester in Stoker’s Basement of the Hotel Donaldson in downtown Fargo ND. Upcoming and previous events are announced at http://earth.physics.ndsu.nodak.edu/
Past presentations have covered a broad range of subjects with titles ranging from "Collapse: How honeybees are dying and what we can do about it" to "Why do things have mass? Discovery of the Higgs Boson".
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, no Science Café is taking place in the fall 2020 semester. We hope to resume our activities in Spring 2021.
