Athens Science Café

And as if on cue from the post below, another terrific collaboration that has been in the work for a while comes to fruition. This one is aimed at taking science into the community - the Athens Science Café:

Regular meetings held in various locations around Athens where people can come learn about interesting scientific topics in a fun, interactive environment. Each meeting will be led by a professional scientist who is there to introduce some basic concepts and lead an open discussion about things that matter. All meetings are free and open to the public, and you don’t need to know a thing about science to participate and enjoy. 

The first one is coming up on Feb. 25 and features psychology department head and professor Keith Campbell at 6:30 p.m. at Ciné in downtown Athens. Widely known for his research and writing on Narcissism, Campbell's discussion will focus on the science of love, and they’ll even have a special cocktail available for the event (Love Potion #9).

Check it out.
