Science Cafés feature technical conversations in a casual atmosphere

The Science Café series continues at Hudson’s Grill in Jackson. Scientists from Michigan universities talk about current science topics in a relaxed casual atmosphere, over drinks and food with friends.

You need not be a science expert to attend, the events have been funded to encourage engagement by the public. This series is made possible by a grant from the Michigan Space Grant Consortium and support from Jackson Community College.

Upcoming discussions include:

  • Thursday, Oct. 28, at 6 p.m., “Hurricanes and Tornadoes and Floods! Oh My! What’s Climate Change got to do with this?” by Professor Perry Samson, Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Science, University of Michigan.
  • Thursday, Nov. 11, at 6 p.m. “A Supernova in the Lab: Nuclear Research at NSCL” by Zach Constan, Ph.D., Outreach Coordinator, National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory, Michigan State University.

Drink and food specials are offered each night. Students from Jackson Community College will collaborate as hosts, greeters and small group conversation starters.
