The Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences will host a special series of Café Scientifique conversations this summer to mark 40 years of discovery at the Laboratory.
The conversations will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. every Tuesday.
The opening program will feature Bigelow co-founder Clarice Yentsch, former Maine Department of Marine Resources Commissioner Spencer Apollonio, and retired Bigelow scientist Edward Gilfillan. The trio will recount stories of the early days of Bigelow Laboratory.
This program will take place at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences campus at 60 Bigelow Drive in East Boothbay on June 24.
Bigelow invites all to join in conversation about ocean science and technology with laboratory scientists and special guests. All sessions are free and open to the public. Cafe Scientifique is an ongoing series of public gatherings, and is part of the international Cafe Scientifique movement.
Cafe Scientifique will take place from 6-7 p.m. every Tuesday usually at The Opera House at Boothbay Harbor.
