Science Cafe and Cafe Conversation Series

Join us Wednesdays at 5:00 pm at the Ohio University Baker Center Front Room for a topical discussion hosted by guest faculty speaker. Science Cafés and Café Conversations are venues for students to informally share their interests with faculty presenters, staff, and the community in a friendly setting.

Science Cafe and Cafe Conversation Series

We are working toward live captioning of the cafes for future events. In the mean while we are uploading videos to YouTube that should provide captioning within 24 hours. Any individual who needs captioning in order to access a video can also contact male-bru@ohio.edu.
