The inaugural Grand Forks Science Café will be held at the Wild Hog Smokehouse Bar and Grill at 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 2.  This inaugural science café, titled “How will sequestration affect the sciences?”, will give local scientists an opportunity to gather and discuss the ramifications of sequestration’s impacts on the scientific agencies within our government.

Science Cafés are evening gatherings of local scientists.  Invited moderators present a 15 minute talk on a current issue and then the floor is open for all to discuss the issue.  All science fields are welcome to attend and students at all stages of their education should attend as well.  The Grand Forks Science Café was founded by UND graduate students Nick Cilz and Annie Wargetz.
