Science Café to celebrate diversity

Sometimes people forget how big the world is, and how many different people live in it. This diversity, along with its origins and consequences, will be the subject of the next Science Café, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Apr. 24, at Gella's Diner, 117 E. 11th.

"Vive le difference! The Splendor of Variety" is sponsored by Fort Hays State University's Science and Mathematics Education Institute, directed by Dr. Paul Adams, SMEI director and FHSU's Anschutz Professor of Education and a professor of physics. Kansas Citizens for Science is co-sponsoring the event.

According to the California Biodiversity Council, "Everything that lives in an ecosystem is part of the web of life, including humans. Each species of vegetation and each creature has a place on the earth and plays a vital role in the circle of life."

Kansas Medical Cannabis Network's Science Officer Dr. Jon Hauxwell will host the event. Instead of one professor delivering a long speech, the format of the event allows lively discussion in an open forum. Admission for the Science Café is free and open to the public. The café will be in the back room at Gella's.
