What is a Science Cafe?

The mission of a science cafe is to create a social and educational forum where chemists and the general public can meet in a relaxed atmosphere with food and drink and offer an educational presentation that engages the public and teaches them about critical issues involving the chemistry, science and technology that impact the local community.
