East Bay Science Cafe

Informal presentations and discussion with UC Berkeley scientists



Science at Cal is seeking a new location for our monthly science café series. Unfortunately, Restaurant Valparaiso, which has graciously hosted the series for many years, is closing down due to loss of lease. We are grateful to the owners and staff, and we wish them success moving forward. We will announce our new location as soon as possible.


This science cafe is an informal forum for discussing interesting and relevant scientific issues. We encourage public engagement with science by inviting members of the scientific community to present topics for a casual evening of conversation. Cafes may vary in length and format depending upon the speaker and the topic. Audience questions are encouraged both during and after!
