The first Science Café of the semester is scheduled for tomorrow, October 5, and features Peter Yunker, a graduate student in LRSM. He will discuss The Coffee Ring Effect: Silly-Sounding Research Goes a Long Way.

A new series, Penn Lighbulb Café, will feature research in the social sciences, including sociology, political science and economics. The inaugural Penn Lightbulb Café kicks off on Wednesday, October 26 with Dr. David Gibson, assistant professor of sociology, on Conversational Syntax, Turn-Taking, and the Fate of the World during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Both the Science and Lightbulb Cafés will be held monthly at 6 p.m. at the Pepper Mill Café on the second floor of the Penn Museum. Menu items, beer, wine and other beverages will be available for purchase. The schedules will be posted on the Penn News webpage in the near future. RSVPs are encouraged, bryangm@pobox.upenn.edu
