Tilde Cafe is the oldest continuously running science cafe in Connecticut. We meet in Branford, CT about once every 4-6 weeks, and topics discussed range from physical sciences, to life sciences and social sciences. A knowledge of the topic being discussed is not required, nor is there any membership requirement or age restriction.
Perhaps the only requirement is curiosity and a thirst for knowledge! Science and technology are integral to every aspect of life - history, geography, humanities, music - everything.

What a wonderful resource you are providing to the global community - I don't live in CT but have been following your website and activities for the last year. Please keep up this effort.
This most recent presentation (3/20/2010) is the second lecture I've attended. I will say that the Branford library seems like the better choice in sheer terms of size for accommodating a crowd. Both lectures were wonderful, and I look especially forward to the discussion on dark matter/energy.
I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend the lecture at Blackstone Library given by Amanda Folsom. I am sharing what I learned there with my Wallingford Adult Education students.
Keep the good work going. I agree, you have created a CT treasure. And its free!!!! Thank you.
We are fortunate to have such amazing scientists in New Haven & from Yale University!
