Explore science through Carleton University’s popular Science Cafés, held twice a month during the fall and winter terms at the Sunnyside Branch of the Ottawa Public Library at 1049 Bank Street (at Aylmer Ave in Old Ottawa South). Each café begins at 6:30 p.m. with a 20-minute talk by a scientist followed by a 40-minute open question and answer period.

Come and join us for a lively discussion around a scientific issue of the day. Be prepared to be informed, engaged and even amused, as our professors share their scientific discoveries with you. All are welcome.

For more information, please contact the Faculty of Science by email at odscience@carleton.ca or by telephone at 613-520-4388.

Fall 2019

Science is for Everyone

In 2008, the Dean of Science kick-started the Science Café—an outreach initiative aimed at connecting Carleton’s researchers to the greater Ottawa community through science education. More than ten years later, the Café is still a hit. Twice a month on Wednesday nights during Carleton’s fall and winter terms, the Faculty of Science hosts volunteer professors to present their innovative research to the public in an inclusive and informal setting.
