What is Science Cafe?
Science Cafe is a grassroots effort to encourage informal but science-based discussion of issues important to New Hampshire. It was started in 2011 by two science fans, Dan Marcek and Sarah Eck, with no funding or sponsorship. Despite that drawback, crowds have been big and enthusiastic, and panelists have included tech corporation officials, academics from UNH and Dartmouth College, the state climatologist and the state director of public health, not to mention farmers, layers, journalists and alternative medicine practitioners. Free monthly gatherings where attendees can ask a panel of experts questions about a topic, held in The Draft Sports Bar in Concord from 6 to 8 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month.

You can find more information about Science Cafe NH at their website, http://sciencecafenh.org/. New episodes of Science Cafe Concord can be seen on ConcordTV Comcast Channel 22 Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 pm. Check our broadcast schedule of reruns of older episodes.
