SCIENCE CAFE: MISSISSIPPI WILDLIFE

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College will host a Science Café on Mississippi Wildlife on September 24, 2019 at the Barry L. Mellinger Student Center on the Perkinston Campus.  The event will begin at 6 p.m. and will feature a discussion and wildlife presentation led by a Hattiesburg Zoo member.   

Science Café on the Coast is a collaboration of The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Library, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Harrison County Library System, Long Beach Public Library and Hancock County Library System.  It welcomes people who may or may not typically get involved with scientific discussions. Science cafés are not exclusive club meetings for scientists and science majors, nor do they take place exclusively in lecture halls or science museums. The cafés are not long lectures with a passive audience listening to an expert. Rather, they are dynamic, two-way interactions between a scientist and the public. In this way, the public feels empowered to learn, and the scientist speaker gains valuable perspective on his or her own work.

The event is open to the public, and light refreshments will be provided.  For additional information about the MGCCC Science Café, 601.928.6259 or pklibrary@mgccc.edu.
