Nurture Curiosity – Science Café

Nurture Curiosity – a science café for curious minds.

Have you always wanted a place to talk about interesting new ideas in science? Or find out more about a particular science topic?  Nurture Nature Center is pleased to host a virtual informal evening for individuals who want to connect over a variety of science topics.  Each science café starts with a round of trivia questions, followed with a brief talk by a guest speaker on various topics, and ends with an engaging discussion.

We encourage all to attend, and bring your thoughts, questions, and ideas. Learn, converse, and meet others who are inquisitive.

During NNC’s closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, science cafés are being held virtually using GoToMeeting software.

The next science café is Thursday April 15th at 7 pm with special guest Pam Ruch, NNC Garden Director talking about gardening and more.
