Grab a Pint and Join a Science Discussion

The Portsmouth Science Café is hosted by NH EPSCoR in partnership with the University of New Hampshire, the Portsmouth Brewery and WSCA 106.1 Portsmouth Community Radio. Moderated by UNH faculty member Cameron Wake at the Portsmouth Brewery's Jimmy LaPanza Lounge, the Portsmouth Science Café series provides a unique opportunity for Seacoast residents to feed their minds with contemporary science in the relaxed atmosphere of a pub. Discussions, which are free and open to all, run from 6-8 p.m.; doors open at 5 p.m. for food and drinks.

Science cafés give the public access to experts and professionals, who are also local residents, in a relaxed atmosphere where everyone joins in the discussion. This grassroots movement increases community awareness of STEM-related careers and contemorary issues in science and technology and is gaining momentum across the state in places like Nashua's Science Cafe New Hampshire, Lebanon's Science Pub at Salt Hill, Manchester's Science on Tap, and North Conway's Science Pub Night.
