Café Scientifique

Café Scientifique is an off-campus community event that allows local researchers to informally discuss their work. Café Scientifique is designed to engage the community on the understanding of science. Community members are encouraged to ask questions and contribute to the conversation.

Café Scientifque allows undergraduate students and faculty to present their research in a non-academic setting. This is an opportunity for students to participate in the management, promotion and community outreach on the research taking place at the University of Minnesota, Morris.
