The University of Arizona (UA Science) presents Science Café, a free series of informal science lectures given by University of Arizona scientists & researchers from several different fields. Unlike most university lectures, these are not only informal but fun and take place in several very laid back venues.Although questions and answers are part of the experience you won’t be expected to pass a test.

A few of these lectures have come and gone but there are still many interesting topics on the schedule through December, 2015. Come as you are and learn something new. All the lectures will be held at 6:00 p.m. at the various locations:

                →                  →                   →                   →                 →
