Science Cafes

The FABBS periodically hosts educational events for the public. Our popular Science Cafés offer the public an opportunity to learn about our sciences in an interactive, social environment. The cafés feature lectures by leading researchers from around the country and are most-often held at interesting venues such as the Newseum in the Washington, DC area. DVD’s of many of these events are available to faculty for classroom use and to the general public at cost.
