Science Café lecture series begins at SJR State

St. Johns River State College announces a science lecture series for students and the public to engage in this fall. SJR State science professor Karen Meyer said the new Science Café is a trendy way to get more people involved with science. “We’re beginning the series with aquatic ecologist Robert Storm Burks, who will discuss the blue-green algal blooms our river and its tributaries are experiencing,” she said. Attendees will also learn how to report algae occurrences on the waterways using Water Rangers, a new Web-based app.

The first Science Café session will be held Tuesday, September 26 at 7:00 p.m. on the SJR State Orange Park campus in room D14. Participants will experience a casual evening filled with interesting topics, tasty treats and engaging conversation. The free event is in collaboration with the St. Johns Riverkeeper and is open to the public.
