Elections, Politics and Science at Queen Anne Science Cafe
Note: The Queen Anne Science Café starts this month at 6:30 p.m. to accommodate earlier election returns and has a slightly different format than most months.
Elections and political campaigns spark public discussions about influential topics that shape our society. Though they often take a back seat to issues like national security and the economy, science and technology-based issues also impact citizens and are influenced by government. At this special extended election-night edition, join a non-partisan selection of local scientists and researchers to discuss the intersection of politics and science, including how scientists are involved in shaping policy and how funding affects scientific research. We’ll also watch a live stream of election results. Download the PDF flyer.
Queen Anne Science Café is held on the first Tuesday of each month. Did you miss a café and want to hear the discussion? Most Science Cafés are recorded by KCTS 9 and are available for online viewing. Queen Anne Science Cafés take place at T.S. McHugh's and are presented in partnership with Pacific Science Center and KCTS 9.
