About Science Pub RVA

Science Pub RVA connects curious citizens and creative scientists over a sip of some sort. No science background is needed. SciPubbers can hang out and listen-in or help create the conversation by adding their thoughts, sharing their experiences, and asking questions. 

Mission Statement
Broaden the Richmond citizenry that is informed by science, convinced of its value and engaged with its applications.

Science Matters and The Community Idea Stations welcomes sponsors for a single Science Pub RVA event, the full season, or a short sequence like the three-event Humans & Technology series happening in partnership with VCU’s Science, Technology & Society Program in Spring 2016. Send an email to cgibbs@idestations.org to begin a conversation and explore the possibility of being a sponsoring partner.

Comments and notes expressing enjoyment and appreciation from attendees is the recognition we most value. Other distinctions include:

Inspired by news of similar opportunities in other cities, science enthusiast and educator Cynthia Gibbs founded this citizen-led science café in and for the Richmond community. Science Pub RVA held its first public event in June 2012 and has since engaged more than 1,500 curious minds at 28 public events. Science Pub RVA has collaborated with and presented researchers, educators and practitioners from NASA Langley, Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Randolph-Macon College, University of Richmond, Virginia’s Department of Conservation and Recreation, Virginia Commonwealth University and the Smithsonian Institution.
