Welcome to the Central Valley Café Scientifique!
Our goal is to add a bit of science to the regular roster of cultural activities in the great Central Valley of California! Just like Fresno’s monthly Art-Hop and other artistic events you might be familiar with in our community, we provide the opportunity to savor some science. We invite you to come explore the latest ideas in science and technology, hear from local scientists (from Fresno State and other local institutions), connect with other science enthusiasts, and participate in making the Central Valley a place where science thrives.
Following the tradition of the growing Café Scientifique movement, we meet in an informal setting outside of academia, where non-scientists can engage in stimulating (and friendly) conversation about current scientific topics with researchers “in the know”.
Do join us on First Monday evenings every month during the school year – i.e., September-May.
