Café Scientifique is a place where anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. The first Café was held in Leeds, UK, in 1988, now they are held throughout the world in cafés, bars, theatres and around Queensland! Queensland held its first Café in August 2012 at the Queensland Museum South Bank.
Inspiring Australia is looking for people who want to hold their own Cafés in Queensland. There is limited funding support of up to $200 available to help. For details on Cafés Scientifique check this website and its calendar. If you would like to hold a Café Scientifique, please get in touch!
