Café Scientifique is a meeting where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a slice of cheesecake, anyone can come to explore and debate the latest ideas in science, mathematics, medicine and technology. It is held at T Spoons in downtown Iowa City on the corner of Linn and Market on the third Thursday of the month from September to May.
