Ask a Scientist is a casual, educational, entertaining lecture series that takes place at cafes and other informal venues around San Francisco. Founded in 2003, Ask a Scientist was a pioneer in the now-familiar world of science night life, and holds the title of the oldest "science cafe" in the western U.S. Our talks feature an expert speaker on a scientific topic, a short presentation, and the opportunity to ask all those burning questions that have been keeping you up at night. No tests, grades, or pressure — just food, drinks, socializing, and conversation about the universe’s most fascinating mysteries!

UPCOMING EVENTS

Ask a Scientist's PI DAY Puzzle Party
Monday, March 14th, 2016 | 7pm

Trying to decide how you're going to celebrate Pi Day (3.14) this year? Avoid the congested airports and typical math holiday madness, and join us instead for Ask a Scientist's Pi Day Puzzle Party — a boisterous math and logic puzzle competition, hosted by the inimitable Wes Carroll. You can compete solo or on a team of up to 6 people. Come with your own crew, or form a team on the spot with other partnerless smarties. Bring your own pencils, scratch paper, and basic non-scientific calculators. The winning team receives a round of applause and a boundless feeling of pride! Plus: the members of this year's winning team will be promoted from Competitors to Scouts — helping us search for and test the best possible puzzles for Pi Day 2017!

Puzzle Master: Wes Carroll of BodSAT SAT Prep and Do The Math Private Tutoring Services

Location: SoMa StrEat Food Park, 428 11th Street, San Francisco.

Eats: Bring your appetites! SoMa StrEat Food Park hosts up to ten gourmet food trucks at a time, along with the city’s only beer and wine truck.
