Do you ever wonder what scientists do when they’re not doing…. science? Cafe Scientifique is “a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology.” The concept started in the UK and now they are springing up all over, bringing folks from all walks of life together to debate and discuss what’s new. Science-types and English majors are both welcome.
We have two cafes in our transit-shed, lucky us. One in Annapolis, where Cy Jones from the World Resources Institute is going to discuss water trading tomorrow, September 30. Like carbon trading, only wetter. Another in Arlington on October 7, where Dr. Don Wilson from the Smithsonian Institution going to talk about Bats: Myth and Reality. It’s at the Front Page, in Ballston. If you’ve ever thought about putting up a bat house, this is your chance to ask all those questions.
Could be a nice addition to the ‘hood. If the neighbors aren’t too freaked out, that is.
