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”.

Please join us at 7PM on the first Monday of the month!

  1. On Saturday, April 20th, 11am – 4pm, Earth Day Fresno will be held in Courthouse Park. This free, outdoor event will feature workshops, green businesses, environmental organizations, clean energy cars, kids’ activities, local food, live music, the Bookmobile (featuring books on science and sustainability), free valet bike parking and more. It will be powered by Sunpods*. While this year’s website is still a work in progress, you can find out what last year’s event was like at http://www.fresnoearthday.org (different name and location…..same enthusiastic organizers)
    Would CV Café Scientifique like to participate in this event? I have sent Madhusudan Katti a list of the many ways to get involved.
    I will look forward to hearing from you.

    PS: I apologize if you’ve already responded to a aprevious invitation to this event. We’re an all-volunteer outfit and our wires occasionally get crossed

  2. Whoa! I almost fell out of my chair when I discovered you exist! I will attend this Monday’s meeting, thank you.
