Science Café Cleveland


Science Café Cleveland is a lively, informal public forum for the open discussion of current science issues. The science café as a concept is based on the 17th and 18th Century European salon, and there are many such cafés currently active throughout the world. Science Café Cleveland takes place on the second Monday of each month at the Music Box Supper Club, a modern music club with an inviting atmosphere that overlooks the Cuyahoga River where it enters Lake Erie. Science Café Cleveland is sponsored by the Case Western Reserve University chapter of Sigma Xi – The Scientific Research Honor Society, WCPN Ideastream (Cleveland), and the Music Box Supper Club.

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. On occasion, you can preview the café by listening to the Sound of Ideas on WCPN Ideastream (90.3 FM) the morning of the event. (Links to podcasts of past shows may be found on our list of past cafés; they are a great way to catch up on topics that you may have missed.) If you would like to suggest a topic for a future café or would like to be added to our e-mail list, please send us an e-mail. You can also e-mail us with links to stories or photos of Science Café Cleveland that might be suitable for listing on our web site!
