Welcome to the SciTech Cafe!

Interested in meeting scientists? Learning about some fun topics?

Come to the SciTech Café!

We bring scientists into an informal setting to present science and the scientific process in an accessible way. All are welcome.

We host monthly meetings that are open to the public. For Spring 2023, our events are hosted at Abandoned Building Brewery in Easthampton, MA. We provide appetizers and the topic for the evening. There will be lots of time for questions, plus a few games!

Science Cafes are cropping up around the country in an attempt to make science and scientists more accessible to the general public. You can learn more at NOVA’s website. Please check out the original Science Café in our area, the OEB Science Cafe.

If you have suggestions for speakers or general questions, please contact knordstr@mtholyoke.edu. Sign up for our email list by filling out the form or emailing us directly.
