Ask a Scientist is a casual, educational, entertaining lecture series that takes place at cafes and other informal venues around San Francisco.

The talks feature an expert speaker on a scientific topic, a short presentation, and the opportunity to ask all those burning questions that have been keeping you up at night. No tests, grades, or pressure — just food, drinks, socializing, and conversation about the mysteries of the universe.
