Science Café at Machikaneyama 2014

2014-12-6 (Sat) - 2015-3-14 (Sat)

Come and join us for the Science Café series held at the Museum of Osaka University. We'll discuss what it means to "do science" while enjoying a cup of coffee in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Experts will talk about "science" in an easy-to-understand format and, in doing so, hopefully alleviate any lack of communication between the general public and the experts themselves. Please enjoy the abundant nature of Machikaneyama while spending an academic afternoon with us. We look forward to your attendance.
