Science Cafés involve a face-to-face conversation with a scientist about current science topics. They are open to everyone (21 and older), and take place in casual settings like pubs and coffeehouses. A science café's casual meeting place, plain language, and inclusive conversation create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for people with no science background. Each meeting is organized around an interesting topic of conversation. A scientist gives a brief presentation followed by a question and answer period.
Pub Quiz is a pretty-much-weekly event at Slowdown, typically on Tuesdays unless a rock show moves the day around. Gather up a team of 5 or less people and get ready to have your wits tested with 40 questions from the Quiz Masters. Always a nice prize for the winners!
