UA Science Cafés

Discover the fascinating science happening all around us at the UA Science Café Series, brought to you by the University of Arizona College of Science. Science Cafés bring the community together with a U of A scientists and graduate students in a casual setting. You’ll learn about the latest research being conducted, get to know the faces behind the science, and have opportunities to ask questions and deepen your understanding. We have four separate café series at four different locations around Tucson, each with their own themes for fascinating science discussions. Come join the conversation!
