Meet the Scientist
Meet the Scientist offers teens and adults the
opportunity to meet practicing scientists and get a glimpse of
the research and education needed by professionals in their
fields of expertise. Our speakers talk about their avocation,
then demonstrate an activity they might perform in the lab or
even invite the public to participate. Usually only 30 minutes
long, these special programs offer opportunities for adults and
teens to ask questions and explore basic scientific procedures.

Café Scientifique offers adults the opportunity to talk
about hot-button science topics in a relaxed atmosphere. With
free hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar, under the soft blue lights
in ECHO's salon, visitors are encouraged to listen to an expert,
and then engage in thoughtful conversation. Topics vary from
medical science discoveries to string theory to the demise of
the honeybee. Usually held on Thursday evenings, ECHO is open at
6:30 p.m. with the program beginning at 7:00 p.m. and ending by
Panel Discussions, book signings, speaker series.
Depending on our changing exhibit theme, we offer adult programs
that delve into topics in ways for participants to add their
voice. Check our
Events Calendar for the next offerings!
Usually science-themed, our movie shorts
offer guests an opportunity to learn about an aspect of science
as it relates to our changing exhibit or to general
science-based topics. For 15-30 minutes you'll have the
opportunity to learn while sitting down and relaxing for a bit
in a quiet space.
