Science Cafés at Machikaneyama -- cafés for the 2nd half of the 2011~12 academic year

2011-12-24 (Sat) - 2012-3-10 (Sat)

How about enjoying a "science café" at the Museum of Osaka University?

How about discussing science with researchers, with specialists actually engaged in conducting scientific research, in a relaxed atmosphere with a cup of coffee in one hand?

Science cafés are events for anyone, giving citizens the opportunity to bridge and enjoy bridging the communication gap between the specialist and the common person. Please look over the list of cafés scheduled below and come to those which interest you.
