Science Cafés are a weekly event where anyone can participate in topical discussions with leaders in the fields of science and technology. Hosted by the Daily Planet Cafe in the Nature Research Center, these weekly talks promote discussion of science in an informal setting.
Throughout the year, prominent researchers share their expertise with Museum visitors during presentations, discussions and informal talks.
Science Saturdays is a series of lectures and demonstrations that are held on the first Saturday of each month in the SECU Daily Planet Theater at 11 am. The presentations mainly target middle- and high-school students, but everyone is welcome to attend. Science Saturdays are held in partnership with the NC State University Biomedical Engineering Department and are funded through NC Space Grant.
